UCR Hosts Symposium on Tobacco-related Disease Research

On Friday, Oct. 29, UCR hosted a mini-symposium to highlight recent tobacco-related disease research. The symposium was organized by Drs. Yinsheng Wang, Prue Talbot of UCR and Kamlesh Asotra of the Tobacco-related Disease Research Program. I was not able to attend but but I understand that it was very successful. Below are pictures of a number of ETOX faculty and students in attendance.
