Research Programs

Links to Research Offices

Office of Research and Development (ORD)
ORD focuses on the advancement of basic peer-reviewed scientific research and the implementation of cost-effective, common sense technology. Fundamental to ORD's mission is a partnership with the academic scientific community, through extramural research grants and fellowships.

Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP)
EMAP is a research program to develop the tools necessary to monitor and assess the status and trends of national ecological resources.

Great Lakes National Program Office - Lake Michigan Mass Balance Study
This 1994-1999 study, when concluded, will outline the fate of toxic chemicals in Lake Michigan and the complexities of managing one aspect of a large-scale ecosystem.

Microbiology Home Page
Access to microbiology-related information that has been developed or managed by the Agency. This Web site is maintained by the Human Exposure Research Division of the National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL).

National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA)
This site serves as the national resource center for the overall process of human health and ecological risk assessments; the integration of hazard, dose-response , and exposure data and models to produce risk characterizations.

National Center for Environmental Economics (NCEE)
NCEE analyzes relationships between the economy, environmental health, and environmental pollution control. NCEE also serves as a central point of contact for communicating and resolving cross-cutting technical economic issues.

National Center for Environmental Research (NCER)
This site has been designed to give investigators easy access to research funding opportunities and past and present research projects and programs. A future goal is to fully automate application procedures through this site.

National Environmental Scientific Computing Center (NESC2)
The NESC houses EPA's first supercomputer which provides High Performance Computing and Communications (HPCC) resources necessary to support environmental research of global proportions, improved science for the development of regulations, and educational programs for the environmental and computational sciences.

Office of Science and Technology (OST) Office of Water
OST is responsible for developing sound, scientifically defensible standards, criteria, advisories, guidelines, limitations and standards under the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act.
