History of EPA Research

EPA turns 50 this year! From the start, our Agency has brought together research, monitoring, standard-setting, and enforcement activities to ensure environmental protection. Every step has been grounded in science. Our researchers and partners have provided the data, knowledge, and tools needed to tackle the most pressing environmental and related health challenges the nation has faced. On this page, you'll find links to milestones and other resources grouped by research area.
