Goals

  • Develop tools for detecting sources of, and estimate exposures to, semi-volatile airborne PCBs
  • Provide scientific evidence for use in economic, health-based, decision making concerning human exposure to PCBs
  • Create recommendations to prevent and limit exposure to semi-volatile airborne PCBs
  • Propose interventions that would mitigate the impacts of Superfund chemicals and protect Public Health

About the Program

Supported with funding from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ Superfund Research Program, the Iowa Superfund Research Program is comprised of 17 scientists and engineers from 5 colleges and 2 universities.
 
Working with our partners, we bring a broad range of expertise to bear on public health problems associated with Superfund chemicals.
 
Our research projects are supported by six cores—AdministrationSynthesisAnalytical, TrainingResearch Translation, and Community Engagement.
 
The program started in 2006 and is directed by Dr. Keri Hornbuckle.
