Congratulations to our three P30 center members and trainees for their awards!

Dr. Philip Landrigan was awarded the first-ever Champion of Environmental Health Research Award from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS).

Dr. Mary Wolff was awarded the 2016 Dr. Jerome J. Wesolowski Award from the International Society of Exposure Science for sustained and outstanding contributions to the knowledge and practice of human exposure assessment. Dr. Wolff has a distinguished career in public health and continues the effort to emphasize the importance of appropriate use of exposure biomarkers, and to urge researchers to avoid inappropriate application of technologically feasible measurements.

Dr. Alison Sanders is a recipient of the 2016 New York Academy of Sciences From Scientist to CSO Award. As a winner of this award, Dr. Sanders will be able to attend the From Scientist to CSO course, a professional development course for scientists and engineers that helps develop business skills, including communications, performance management, and team building.

Once again, congrats to our P30 Center members and trainees for their contributions!
