Al Jazeera America is doing a follow-up piece on electronic cigarettes. Last year they interviewed Monique Williams, an Environmental Toxicology graduate student working with Dr. Prue Talbot, about her work on the components and cytotoxicity of electronic cigarettes. This week they interviewed Monique and Crystal Hua, another ETOX student working with Dr. Talbot. I will post a link to the video when it is available. Below is a montage of photos showing Monique and the interviewer. Again, congratulations to Monique, Crystal and Prue Talbot for this nice recognition.
