The Hill Reagan’s Superfund research must get back to Bush II funding levels Congress should continue to support President Reagan’s Superfund Research Program (SRP) in the fiscal 2017 and 2018 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations bills and restore SRP funding to the levels during the George W. Bush administration. Continued and appropriate funding of the SRP program is an important investment in education, public health and job […] Born too soon Soon after Cordero’s return, two engineers appeared at his door. One, Ingrid Y. Padilla, was a slight, wry hydrologist from a west-coast campus of the university; the other, Akram N. Alshawabkeh, an expert in groundwater remediation, came from Northeastern University. They told Cordero that Puerto Rico has one of the nation’s highest concentrations of Superfund […] Akram Alshawabkeh for Northeastern Global News Researchers receive $13.2 million to continue study of health challenges facing women, children in Puerto Rico Researchers receive $13.2 million to continue study of health challenges facing women, children in Puerto Rico For the past 10 years, Northeastern-led research teams have been studying how the environment affects the health and development of mothers, infants, and children living on the island of Puerto Rico. Now, the researchers have received a $13.2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue their study of the effects of environmental contaminants on the well-being of people in the region. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences head lauds Northeastern’s interdisciplinary approach National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences head lauds Northeastern’s interdisciplinary approach “You cannot do environmental health work if you don’t work with the community,” said Linda Birnbaum, director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, during remarks on campus on Monday. She lauded Northeastern, with its emphasis on interdisciplinary research and practice, for doing just that, and noted Northeastern’s contributions to a multi-country study of Zika. New grant puts Northeastern at forefront of solving health challenges for women, children New grant puts Northeastern at forefront of solving health challenges for women, children The award, from the NIH and the EPA, will establish a center in Puerto Rico that will study how pollutant exposure and psychosocial risk factors impact the health and development of children living on the island’s heavily contaminated northern coast. Northeastern awarded NIH grant to study links between contaminants, preterm birth Northeastern awarded NIH grant to study links between contaminants, preterm birth Northeastern University has received a five-year, $13.5 million award from the National Institutes of Health to continue its interdisciplinary, multi-university investigation into the complex relationship between environmental contamination and preterm birth.
