Marylynn Yates' Research is highlighted on UCR website

There is a nice write-up about the research and expertise of ETOX faculty member and Dean Marylynn Yates that can be found on the UCR Living the Promise website.  There is also a short video clip where Marylynn discusses water and water quality issues.  I recommend taking a look to find out more about this talented researcher, teacher, and leader. 

ETOX Faculty Featured in College Science Lecture Series

The College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences is sponsoring a lecture series focusing on the Science of Disease.  Three of the Environmental Toxicology faculty are featured - Marylynn Yates who is currently serving as Dean of the College, Yinsheng Wang, the director of the ETOX Graduate program, and Nicole zur Nieden, an assistant professor who works in stem cell research.  A flyer describing the presentations and the dates and times is shown below.  The talks are intended for a lay audience but should be excellent. 

More information on Yinsheng Wang's upcoming lecture can be found here.
