Funding Period: 1989-2021
- 312 - Improved Sequencing Method Leads to Advancements in Toxicology Research -- Zacharewski
Release Date: 12/02/2020
NIEHS-funded Superfund Research Program (SRP) scientists are employing a new RNA sequencing method to assess mechanisms of toxicity on a finer and more accessible scale. Researchers in SRP grantee Tim Zacharewski's Lab at the Michigan State University (MSU) SRP Center conducted the study.
- 275 - Activated Carbon Reduces the Effects of TCDD on the Immune System and Gut Microbiome in a Mammalian Model -- Boyd, Hashsham
Release Date: 11/01/2017
Breakthroughs from the Michigan State University Superfund Research Program (MSU SRP) Center provide new evidence that activated carbon may be used to reduce health risks resulting from dioxin contamination.
- 188 - TCDD May Contribute to Immune System Instability -- Kaminski
Release Date: 08/04/2010 A new computational model shows how the environmental contaminant TCDD causes immune system mayhem by interfering with the activation of crucial B cells.
- 183 - Sequestration of Dioxin by Clays -- Boyd
Release Date: 03/03/2010
Although the organic matter in soil is often considered best for sequestering contaminants, new evidence shows that clay is as good--and perhaps better--at sequestering dioxins.
