Return To The Containment 2001 Proceedings

J. Michael Kuperberg, Ph.D., Associate Director for Technology Deployment
Dr. Kuperberg's research interests include the neurochemical basis for organophosphate-induced alterations in body temperature as well as the application of basic scientific research to environmental decision making through the use of risk assessment.

His responsibilities at the IICER include providing toxicological support services to various state and federal agencies.  He is the project manager for a multi-year, multi-million dollar, U.S. DOE-funded program being conducted in southern Poland.  The purpose of this program is to identify and evaluate environmental remediation technologies with potential for application to the DOE complex.  Current projects in this program include the removal of heavy metals from soil by plants (phytoextraction) and the biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons (bioremediation).  Dr. Kuperberg teaches classes in ecological toxicology and risk assessment at Florida State University and Florida A&M University.
