The Iowa Superfund Research Program (ISRP) is a highly integrated research center focusing on the sources, exposures, remediation and toxicities of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) congeners found in air. The integrated nature of the center across biomedical and environmental science and engineering disciplines has led to vital discoveries. These interdisciplinary successes are made possible by our organizational infrastructure, which enables frequent and regular exchange of ideas, experiments, and data between our projects and cores.

The Program and Research Support Cores communicate with all projects, thus fostering regular communication and interaction among all components (projects and cores) of the ISRP.
