Description:

The National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) has a valued reputation for supporting the Agency’s mission of protecting human health and the environment with multidisciplinary expertise that brings cutting-edge research and technology to address critical exposure questions and to develop approaches for reducing harmful exposures. I am pleased to present this strategic plan that outlines who we are as an organization – our mission, our values, our goals, and our direction for the future. The plan was developed after much discussion among NERL’s management team and with input from across the Laboratory. Our plan flows from EPA’s Strategic Plan and NERL’s Exposure Framework. It emphasizes the science and capabilities we bring to each of ORD’s research programs, and highlights when we have opportunities to collaborate across ORD as well as the broader Federal and scientific research community. I am excited about leading this respected and dynamic organization as we implement our plan. While the Strategic Plan provides a compass for the next five years, a companion document, NERL’s Action Plan, provides the road map with details about the approaches that will be employed over the next one to two years to ensure that NERL and its scientists continue to be internationally recognized for exceptional contributions to exposure research science
