In the News

Over the past month or two, the research of a number of ETOX faculty members have been featured or the faculty members have been quoted in the news. Here are those of which I am aware.

Sharon Walker's efforts to provide opportunities for minorities and community college students to conduct research is spotlighted in the UCR Magazine. One of the programs entitled "Building Bridges Across Riverside Through Water Quality Research" is a collaborative effort funded by the USDA that involves ETOX alumna Heather Smith who is a professor of life sciences at Riverside Community College. The article can be accessed here.

Carl Cranor was recently quoted fairly extensively in a recent article on the new report on risk assessment published by the National Academy of Sciences. His comments were published on-line on the Environmental Health News website which can be accessed here.

Dave Eastmond was briefly quoted in the November issue of Self Magazine responsing to questions about Kinoki foot patches that are purported to have benefits in helping to eliminate toxins from the body.

Wilfred Chen, Ashok Mulchandani and Marylynn Yates' research on a new method that will allow the detection of one infective virus within two hours was recently published in PNAS and was spotlighted in InsideUCR. The news clip can be accessed here.

Xuan Liu's recent research on the intracellular relocalization of p53 following treatment of cells with apigenin, a dietary flavonoid, was also recently published in PNAS and highlighted in the InsideUCR news. The news clip can be accessed here.
