Research translation core

UW SRP's Research Translation Core communicated research findings from the program to stakeholders. 

The UW SRP Research Translation Core (RTC) supported and coordinated researcher-initiated efforts to identify and engage end users of their research to increase the social relevance of UW SRP research. The RTC worked with UW SRP stakeholders, in particular the US Environmental Protection Agency Region 10, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry and our local communities, to disseminate emerging research findings and apply current research outcomes to improve public health. A list of agency and community partners is below. 

As part of research translation, UW SRP investigators also helped transfer the technology that they developed to researchers at other institutions who may benefit from a novel approach to their investigations.

Investigator-initiated research translation

Investigator-initiated research translation includes efforts by researchers to communicate their findings beyond typical academic communications like peer-reviewed journal articles and scientific conference presentations.

Technology transfer

SRP researchers shared their innovative technologies and protocols to help detect and remediate harmful contaminants in the environment and better understand the effects of contaminants on health.
