The University of Cincinnati’s Center for Environmental Genetics (UC CEG) held “its annual Research Symposium on Wednesday October 26, 2022, with featured speaker Robyn L. Tanguay, PhD, University Distinguished Professor in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, Oregon State University; Director of the Pacific Northwest Center for Translational Environmental Health Research (NIEHS P30 ES030287); and Principal Investigator of the OSU Superfund Research Program (NIEHS P24 5P42ES016465). Dr. Tanguay spoke on Using Multidimensional Zebrafish Data to Advance Environmental Health Sciences.” She was the Plenary Speaker for the night and we could not be more proud!
The University of Cincinnati goes on to say: “The seminar was followed by updates on several recent CEG-funded pilot studies, with topics including fluoride exposure, mitochondrial function and neurodevelopment; remote sensing-enabled machine learning for river water quality modeling under multi-dimensional uncertainty; programming the skin microbiome against environmental pollution, elucidating the liver protective functions of BRUCE; the role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor in directing the differentiation of progenitor blastomeres; and academic-community partnerships in the study of regional air pollution.”
