A Review of the Environmental Protection Agency's 
Science to Achieve Results Research Program
This new report, A Review of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Science to Achieve Results Research (STAR) Program, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, assesses the program’s scientific merit, public benefits, and overall contributions in the context of other relevant research and recommends ways to enhance those aspects of the program. This report also considers the conclusions and recommendations of a prior National Research Council review of the STAR program (2003), the STAR program’s research priorities in light of the nation’s environmental challenges, and the effects of recent STAR funding trends on obtaining scientific information needed to protect public health and the environment.
These briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on June 15, 2017 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
