  • Environmental risks visualized through new online tools
    Environmental Factor - April 2020
    Scientists funded by the NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) developed online tools to inform local communities about potential environmental health risks. The researchers hail from the University of California at Berkeley (UCB) and Texas A&M University (TAMU).
  • Collaborative Cross mice reveal different susceptibilities
    Paper of the Month - September 2019
    NIEHS grantees found that the Collaborative Cross (CC) mouse model - which uses genetically diverse mice to capture over 90 of the known mouse genetic variations can account for individual differences in susceptibility to environmental chemicals. Using the CC mouse model, researchers measured individual variability in kidney toxicity after exposure to tetrachloroethylene (PERC), a solvent frequently used in dry cleaning solutions, adhesives, and metal degreasers.
