David Eastmond, an ETOX faculty member , was recently appointed to the Board of Scientific Counselors of the National Toxicology Program (NTP). He will also be serving on the Technical Reports Review Subcommittee which provides an independent peer review of the NTP bioassay reports and other documents. He was appointed by Michael Leavitt, Secretary of Health and Human Services, and his appointment will continue until June 2012.
One of the benefits of serving on the NTP board is that I get to see Ling Wang, one of my former students and an ETOX alumni, who lives with her family near Research Triangle Park. Below is a picture of Ling and I taken in her house during my recent visit.
