The Division of Environmental Health Sciences has nationally and internationally recognized faculty who provide outstanding mentorship for risk assessment-based and laboratory-based projects. Research projects allow students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to address a diversity of specific toxicological problems from molecules to populations.
Examples of past research projects:
- A Pilot Proteomic Analysis of Pyridyloxobutylation Protein Adduct formation
- In Silico Testing Methods for REACH Registration
- REACH Derived No Effect Levels: Regulatory Purpose and Their Relationship to Health-based Occupational Exposure Limits
- Carcinogenesis and Metabolism of Furan
- The Role of Toxicology in Developing a Truly Harmonized Version of the Global Harmonization System
- Identification of an Unknown Metabolite of Furan
- Potential of Embryonic Stem Cells for Developmental Toxicity Screening
- Relationship Between Nicotine Metabolism and CYP2A6 Genotype: A Pilot Study
- Development of Predictive Methods to Estimate Metal (Lead) Exposure Based on Soil Ingestion using Monte Carlo Risk Assessment and Tested on a Comparison of High Risk Areas for Children in Minneapolis and the Bahamas.
- A Novel Animal-Free Approach to Dermal Sensitization: Hazard Identification and Potency Assessment
