Research Interest:
My first rotation will be with Dr. Spyropolous; I will be working on a continuation of my summer project involving the generation and utility of hepatocyte-like cells from pygmy sperm whale (kogia breviceps) induced pluripotent cells.   I am interested in conducting assessments of toxicity and examining how marine organisms accumulate and metabolize organic and anthropogenic contaminants.
