Superfund Center Wins Five-Year Renewal

Grant from National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

The Duke University Superfund Research Center has been awarded a five-year grant for nearly $10.2 million from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

The renewal grant will support five Superfund Center research projects investigating the later-life consequences of early-life exposures to hazardous chemicals. It will also fund six outreach and training programs designed to augment and support the center’s research.

Highly interdisciplinary in nature, the Superfund Center brings together teams of biomedical, social and environmental scientists and engineers from across Duke’s campus – and from other institutions such as North Carolina State University – to investigate some of the most pressing issues in environmental health today.
