Abstract

The Consortium for Risk Evaluation with Stakeholder Participation (CRESP) is an experiment in attempting to mobilize academic- based multi- disciplinary research to be responsive to stakeholders in a manner that allows resolution of complex environmental health issues and leads to enhanced environmental and public health protection. CRESP investigators have carried out projects in which stakeholders are involved in various steps of the project cycle. In this paper, some examples of CRESP's approach to community-based research are presented. Difficulties, challenges, advantages, and methods for performing research with stakeholder involvement in an academic setting are also highlighted. CRESP's experience with community-based research should be viewed as an experiment in progress. Although CRESP has had apparent success as shown with examples in this paper, further analysis is needed to determine whether the central experimental questions have been answered, whether we have truly been able to effectively involve stakeholders in our research, and whether academic researchers effectively respond to stakeholder needs.
