The purpose of this supplement is to provide support for successful applicants for translational/transdisciplinary opportunities and experiences within other Superfund Research Program-funded centers, government laboratories, or other agencies (state, local, Tribal).
The NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) established an honorary supplemental award in memory of K.C. Donnelly, Ph.D., a longtime SRP grantee who worked tirelessly to improve the understanding of environmental exposure and genotoxicity of complex chemical mixtures. Dr. Donnelly passed away on July 1, 2009. He was a dedicated mentor to his students and postdoctoral researchers, instilling in them the importance of applying their knowledge and findings to improve the health of communities exposed to environmental contaminants. To learn more about his SRP-sponsored research at Texas A&M University, please refer to his SRP profile webpage.
The purpose of these KC Donnelly Externship Administrative Supplements is to provide current SRP-funded graduate students and post-doctoral researchers with translational/transdisciplinary opportunities and experiences within other SRP-funded grants (e.g., P42, R01, SBIR, R25, etc.), government laboratories (e.g., US EPA, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), NIEHS), or other agencies (state, local, Tribal).
Examples of these types of externship experiences include, but are not limited to:
- A graduate student performing laboratory research would like to learn a novel analytical technique at another SRP funded center to enhance their research project.
- A post-doctoral researcher conducting epidemiology research would like to understand how their results may apply to risk assessment at a federal agency.
- A graduate student conducting remediation research would like to participate in a community engagement activity at another SRP funded center.
Successful applicants are invited to present their results at the subsequent SRP Annual Meeting.
Application Due Dates - February 28, 2022; February 28, 2023; February 28, 2024
