On September 20-21, 2010, Dean Carter Binational Center for Environmental Health Science collaborators met in Mexico City to discuss future activities that will be developed over the next five years. Since its inception, the Binational Center has lo
oked to its partners to identify themes and activities that will be most effective in addressing environmental issues common to the U.S., Mexico, and in particular the Border region between these two countries. Feedback from partners is crucial, since one important goal is to work toward future leveraging of programs and research developed.
In addition to its 11 Mexican collaborative investigators, representatives from the National Institute of EnvironmentalHealth Sciences Superfund Research Program, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Border 2012 Program, Mexico’s Council on Science and Technology, and the Center for Investigation and Advanced Studies were in attendance. All 25 participants worked towards accomplishing the retreat goal of setting a concrete foundation for future endeavors.
