Abstract

Public policy establishing the UC Toxic Substances Research and Teaching Program helped to establish the state's environmental technology industry. The multidisciplinary "science-push" program generated economic development benefits including leveraged research funding and at least two hundred new private sector jobs, twenty-five spin-off companies, and over one hundred patents.

Many UC-authored scholarly publications are freely available on this site because of the UC's open access policies. Let us know how this access is important for you.
