The Southern California Chapter of the Society of Toxicology held its annual meeting at the Allergan campus in Irvine on Oct. 26, and UC Riverside was well represented. My (Crystal) Hua and Monique Williams, ETOX graduate students and Giovanna Pozuelos (a CMDB graduate student) were all asked to give oral presentations of their research. Monique Williams also received the first place award in the student presentation competition. Below is a picture of Monique (on left) with Arezoo Cambell, the SCCSOT President. Our congratulations to all three students, but especially Monique for this nice recognition.
