Molecular Toxicology Research Featured in Toxicological Sciences

October 10, 2009

Recent MolTox graduate William J. Jo, Ph.D. is the first author of an article published in Toxicological Sciences. The article describes work in the Vulpe Laboratory in collaboration with Luoping Zhang and Martyn Smith as part of the Superfund Basic Research Program. In this study, the researchers identified the genes that are important for susceptibility to arsenic toxicity in bakers yeast. They are now testing if the human counterparts of these genes could play a role in human susceptibility to arsenic. Click here to access the publication.
