Health and Environmental Effects Research
Congratulations to Doug Wolf, an Assistant Laboratory Director on NHEERL's Research Planning and Coordination Staff
Doug Wolf has been selected as this year's Office of Research and Development (ORD) participant in the Agency's Leadership and Professional Development Rotation Program (LPDRP). This program is a competitive, EPA-wide employee development program offering short-term rotational assignments for exceptional employees away from their regular positions. It offers rotational assignments in all occupational areas that support EPA's missions. These assignments typically last from 3 to 6 months, but may not exceed 12 months. A panel of ORD senior managers reviewed all applications and nominated Dr. Wolf as the ORD participant. NHEERL has had the privilege of successfully nominating the last two participants from ORD into this highly competitive program; Dr. Andrew Geller was the first.
Doug's scientific interests are centered on toxicologic pathology, carcinogenesis, and the application of toxicology data in risk assessment. He has also been a consistent advocate for young scientists, especially when it comes to mentor development and career planning, and is presenting a lecture on that topic at this year's annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology. Please congratulate Doug on this great honor.
A Bit More about LPDRP
The purpose of the LPDRP program is to provide rotational assignments for EPA employees to gain knowledge, broaden skills, and enhance professional growth. Assignments are structured to provide a developmental opportunity for the participant.
EPA is committed to promoting a corporate culture and to developing the EPA workforce to its fullest potential. LPDRP is intended to promote cross-line, cross-disciplinary experiences that broaden employees' understanding of EPA's goals, missions, and organizational structures.
