Welcome to the inaugural post of the Environmental Toxicology Graduate Program's blog. The goal of this blog is to provide more up-to-date information about the Program as well as to share news about current and former students, faculty, and friends of the Program.

Above is a photo of Homero Camacho, a current ETOX student, Shambhu Roy, Rupa Doppalapudi and Maik Schuler, former postdocs in the Eastmond lab, Andrew Grosovsky and David and Elizabeth Eastmond. The photo was taken at a lunch during the EMS meeting in Vancouver, BC in Sept. 2006. Click on the photo to see an enlarged version.
