About the Projects Explorer

Collected zebra mussels rest on the deck of a research vessel in the Great Lakes. They filter
water to feed, which concentrates any contaminants they consume within their tissues. Analyzing
them is a low tech but highly accurate process that provides clues to whether or not chemicals
pollute the waterway they inhabit.

The database includes intramural research conducted across our Centers, as well as funded extramural projects. It is an up-to-date resource and includes the option of searching all projects by our research themes, keywords, and the project's primary contact.
