Northeast Regional SRP Meeting in Woods Hole

By Bevin P. Engelward

MIT Superfund Program Director

Thirteen members of the MIT Superfund Research Program team attended the Northeast SRP meeting in Woods Hole on March 26-27, organized by Boston University’s SRP. This meeting was an excellent opportunity to strengthen connections with other Superfund Research Centers, inspiring future efforts and fostering collaborations. Program Director Prof. Bevin Engelward gave a presentation that summarized the context and goals of the MIT SRP, which was a helpful venue for introducing the new MIT SRP to NE SRP Center members. Along with Prof. Engelward, Program Co-Director John Essigmann and CEC Director Kathy Vandiver served as mentors at the trainee luncheon. Nine trainees presented posters, and Project 1 postdoc Hélène Angot’s poster, titled “Toxic Pollutants: from Worldwide Atmospheric Emissions to Impacts on Maine Tribal Areas,” was awarded second place.
