SUMMARY

The collaborative research led by the Yurok Tribe Environmental Program and UC Davis Superfund Research Center will result in the identification of specific contaminants, the ability to track their impacts on human and environmental health, and novel approaches to remediation and mitigation.  The Community Engagement Core significantly contributes to the Superfund Research Center by working to develop meaningful bi-directional communication strategies between university and tribal researchers and community partners to apply UCD Center research to address community concerns.  Broadly, the chemical detection technologies, remediation strategies and training opportunities aim to provide communities with autonomous methods for addressing environmental health problems within their community while training scientists on developing equitable, respectful, and responsible projects with community partners.
