His research eventually led to the establishment of the University of Louisville Superfund Research Center in 2017 (completely funded by the National Institutes for Health (NIH) through 2027), a well‐deserved honor, coveted by research universities across the nation and fiercely sought after. Several of his trainees have been recruited to various Universities and government agencies including Harvard University, University of Louisville, Center for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, and National Institute of health.
