Presentation Overview:

The Superfund Research Program (SRP) will host a Strategic Planning seminar to receive public input regarding the future direction of the Program.

The Superfund Research Program (SRP) funds basic and applied research addressing health effects, risk assessment, detection and remediation of hazardous substances. The SRP, formed in 1987 in response to Superfund Amendment Reauthorization Act (SARA) Section 311(a) "Hazardous Substances Research and Training," is managed by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS/NIH). After over 20 years of progress, the SRP is undergoing a strategic planning process to develop a framework for prioritization of activities over the next 5-10 years and to enhance the impact of the Program.

The purpose of this information session is to receive input from SRP's stakeholders about the future direction of the Program. The session will feature a moderated discussion period framed by a series of questions addressing the scope of SRP science, training, translation, and outreach. These questions are part of the online questionnaire which will be made available in December for public input through January 29, 2010 (for more details, see: http://www.niehs.nih.gov/SRP/strategicplan). Summary of discussion from this seminar, as well as responses to the questionnaire, will be used as a reference for drafting the final Strategic Plan.

We encourage participation by officials from sister Superfund agencies US EPA and ATSDR, as well as representatives of local, state, tribal governments, non-profit organizations, universities, and practicing environmental professionals. The session will be moderated by Larry Reed, MDB, Inc.
