    U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
    National Risk Management Research Laboratory


    As part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development, the National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL) conducts research into ways to prevent and reduce pollution risks that threaten human health and the environment. The laboratory investigates methods to prevent and control pollution to air, land, and water, and to restore ecosystems. The goals of this research are to:

    1. develop and promote technologies that protect and improve the environment;
    2. develop scientific and engineering information to support regulatory and policy decisions; and
    3. provide technical support and information transfer to ensure implementation of environmental regulations and strategies at the national and community levels.

    In addition, NRMRL collaborates with both public and private sector partners to foster technologies that reduce the cost of compliance and to anticipate emerging problems. Overall leadership and scientific direction in NRMRL are provided by:

    • Director, E. Timothy Oppelt
    • Acting Deputy Director for Management, Stephen C. James
    • Associate Director for Health, Hugh W. McKinnon, M.D.
    • Associate Director for Ecology, Lee A. Mulkey
