The Texas A&M Superfund Research Center (Superfund Center) comprehensively evaluates the complexities of hazardous chemical exposures, potentially adverse health impacts, and potential hazards of exposures to complex mixtures through a series of multi-disciplinary projects derived from a case study utilizing Galveston Bay.
