PAHs: New Technologies and Emerging Health Risks
Center Director: Robert L. Tanguay

Funding Period: 2009-2019
- 210 - A New Role for MicroRNAs in Neurobehavioral Development -- Tal, Tanguay
Release Date: 06/06/2012
MicroRNAs may be tiny, but these short pieces of RNA regulate important human genes. The genes they regulate are also more sensitive to environmental chemical exposures. In a new study, researchers found environmental disruption of miRNAs can affect neurobehavioral development in zebrafish.
- 209 - PAHs Before and After the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill -- Anderson
Release Date: 05/02/2012
Oregon State University SRP scientists used their novel passive sampling devices to make before-and-after comparisons of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) at four sites affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Their results suggest a continued need for monitoring of residual oil and dissolved PAHs in the Gulf of Mexico.
- 184 - Linking Site Specific Contaminant Mixtures to Biological Responses -- Anderson
Release Date: 04/05/2010
New tools could help Superfund site managers evaluate the nuances of chemical mixtures and identify the most pressing threats to ecosystem and human health.
