Martins-Green and Curras-Collazo's research on 3rd hand smoke spotlighted

 ETOX faculty members, Drs. Manuela Martins-Green and Maggie Curras-Collazo, and collaborators have recently published a study describing some of the adverse effects of 3rd hand smoke.  Their work shows that mice that were exposed to materials that had been exposed to tobacco smoke exhibited damage to their liver and lungs, hyperactivity and delayed wound healing.  The research is described in an article in UCR Today (the photo above is from the article by Iqbal Pittalwala.) but has been picked up by many news organizations.  For example here is one from Canada.  Our congratulations to Manuela and Maggie for this important work.
