On Monday February 4, NIEHS Director Dr. Linda Birnbaum visited the University of Puerto Rico in a talk coordinated by Core C Investigator Dr. Braulio Jimenez. During Dr. Birnbaum’s visit, she gave a lecture entitled “Future Research at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences” in which she discussed transdisciplinary research such as PROTECT’s as a key driver in research that not only identifies treatments but also preventative measures. In February 2011, Dr. Birnbaum also called out the Center’s work in a statement for the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works’ Hearing on Drinking Water Contaminants.
