David Volz, assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Environmental Toxicology Program faculty member, has been selected for one of the prestigious Outstanding New Environmental Sciences awards by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The award is intended to recognize outstanding scientists at early stages of their careers. This five-year NIH R01 award will allow Dr. Volz and his research group to study mechanisms underlying the developmental toxicity of common indoor organophosphate flame retardants using a zebrafish model. More information on the award can be found in the NIEHS newsletter. Our congratulations to Dave for this very nice recognition.
