The UC San Diego Superfund Research Center (UCSD-SRC) is a multidisciplinary effort consisting of four Biomedical and two Environmental Science and Engineering Projects, all of which will use highly specialized core resources in Genetics and Metabolomics Research Support Core. Along with our training program which will provide career support to graduate and postdoctoral level trainees, the research and core components will work with the Research Translation Core (RTC) to promote our findings to broader based audiences and the Community Engagement Core (CEC) to share our expertise with impacted communities.
