The Superfund Research Program (SRP) is a program created by Congress in the 1980’s to progress research into priority pollution identification, containment, and remediation at Superfund Sites. This program falls under the NIEHS (National Institute of Environmental Health Science) sector of the NIH (National Institute of Health). Oregon State University has 5 ongoing projects under the SRP Center. Dr. Staci Simonich is the project leader for project 5 of the SRP Center. Aside from important research her students get to partake in the SRP Training as dictated by the NIEHS guidelines. This encourages interdisciplinary research, communication development, as well as community outreach participation.
