"The Dartmouth Toxic Metals Superfund Research Program uses an interdisciplinary approach to investigate the ways in which arsenic and mercury in the environment affect ecosystems and human health. We communicate our results to communities, grass-roots organizations, and state and federal agencies, and we train students to conduct research from both a clinical and community-based perspective. We hope you will be inspired to ask questions about our work, and will learn about the ways these metals may affect your health."
The Dartmouth Toxic Metals Superfund Research Program includes scientists, postdoctoral and graduate students, and technical and support staff from Dartmouth College and Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, New Hampshire. We also collaborate with researchers at other universities and government agencies.
Our Program investigates the ways arsenic and mercury in the environment affect ecosystems and human health. As part of our work, we provide students with opportunities to participate on interdisciplinary research teams, and we communicate our research results to state and federal agencies, and grass-roots organizations. Through the partnerships established between our investigators and our stakeholders, we also create opportunities to engage local communities in our research.
