Research Translation
Thomas Burbacher, Core Director

The Research Translation and Outreach Core focuses on the following areas to support the University of Washington Superfund Research Program. (UW-SRP):

  • communicating with government agencies regarding scientific issues of relevance to the Superfund process
  • assisting investigators in 'technology transfer', the process of moving research findings and products into useful application
  • increasing communication avenues between the investigators and health professionals, disease advocacy groups, government agency staff, and the general public
  • working directly with community groups associated with hazardous waste sites and supporting the Northwest Toxic Communities Coalition, active in EPA Region 10

All of these activities help the UW-SRP meet its goal to broadly disseminate emerging research findings and to apply the current research outcomes to improve public health.
