The Superfund Research Program (SRP) at Brown University, titled REUSE IN RI: A State-Based Approach To Complex Exposures embodies the key elements that guide us — the focus is on MIXED EXPOSURES, taking a state-based approach to environmental health research, technology development, and contaminated land re-use with RHODE ISLAND as our laboratory.
Together with our team members from the Rhode Island Department of Health (RIDOH) and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM), we work to expand the understanding of the human health consequences and management of contaminated sites in Rhode Island and other post-industrial states.
Learning how exposure to one chemical alters the susceptibility of the male and female reproductive system to
exposure by a second chemical.
Developing biodosimeters to measure exposure to hexavalent chromium, a potent human carcinogen.
Discovering the health hazards of emerging contaminants such as nanoparticles.
Evaluating pathological alterations ranging from nano-sized particles to organ systems.
Inventing new engineering-based technologies to assess and clean-up hazardous waste.
Predicting the flow of vapors from contaminated soil and groundwater into homes, schools and workplaces.
Removing trace heavy metals such as lead from contaminated water.
Using laboratory and statistical methods to quantitatively assess the chemicals that SRP scientists study.
Research Translation & Community Engagement
Informing state agencies, professional organizations and other academic institutions so that they can understand and
address contaminated environments and their potential health impacts.
Supporting community-based groups to promote environmental justice and assisting concerned Rhode Island
residents with environmentally-related issues.
Educating Brown University undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral research associates through
interdisciplinary courses, laboratory-based activities, field work and community engagement opportunities.
We employ 73 faculty, scientists, staff and students in highly technical positions in Providence's knowledge district.
Brown University's Superfund Research Program is a win-win-win for Rhode Island citizens, Rhode Island communities and the Rhode Island environment.
