The purpose of the Research Translafion Core is to make research outcomes available to governmental organ-izafions responsible for protecfing the health of local communities, to the scientific community in general, and to other SRPs in particular. This is in addifion to organizations engaged with the BU SRP through the Community Engagement Core. The principal goal is to provide knowledge of exposure and health effects useful in risk assessment needed for consequenfial decision-making. This proposal builds on our previous work and includes new partners who can use the SRP and Project results for assessment, regulafion and reducfion of con-taminants found at hazardous waste sites.
Specific Aim 1 : Coordinate communicafion of research within BU SRP, in New England, and the larger NIEHS SRP community to improve applicafion of findings, provide access to data, consolidate resources and increase producfivity and collaboration.
Specific Aim 2 : Develop and. maintain partnerships with governmental environmental and public health agencies and provide them with data and expertise that might improve risk assessment-based decisions, particularly with respect to developmental and reproducfive effects of environmental chemicals.
Specific Aim 3 : Effect technology transfer by identifying potenfial end-users of technologies, assays and re^ sources developed by BU SRP projects and facilitate their application.
Specific Aim 4 : Pursue, inifiate and implement Center-specific research translafion activifies (i.e., emanafing from the BU SRP), working with the Community Engagement and Training Cores to have a broader impact.

Public Health Relevance

Our emphasis on open access and the willingness of our investigators to share reagents, new analytic methods, risk assessment techniques, and software, have contributed to the confidence in our partners of our commitment to make our work available to agencies and individuals who must make difficult decisions each day to improve public health and protect the lives of residents living in proximity to hazardous waste sites.
