UCR well represented at SCC SOT meeting

The Southern California Chapter of the Society of Toxicology held its annual meeting on Oct.4 in Carlsbad, California at the ISIS Pharmaceutical facility.  The focus of the day's meeting was on epigenetics but also had a keynote presentation from Tom Kensler from the University of Pittsburgh/Johns Hopkins.  UCR was well represented with 13 in attendance - 9 graduate students (most from ETOX but several from CMDB program), 1 undergrad, 2 postdocs and 1 faculty member.  A number of the students presented their research and Ashley Swanson's poster was selected for the 3rd place award.  Our congratulations to Ashley and the other students for attending and presenting their research.  Below are photos from the event.
