Eshan Patel ‘13 traveled to the 51st meeting of the Society of Toxicology to present his research about the coexposure of cobalt and nickel on the cytotoxicity on human lung epithelial cells.

Toxicology is commonly known as the study of harmful effects of chemical or physical agents on living organisms. The chemical agents of interest in this project were the heavy metals: nickel and cobalt. It was previously found at Washington College that co-exposure to nickel and cobalt chloride enhances cytotoxicity and oxidative stress in human lung epithelial cells (Patel, Lynch, Ruff, and Reynolds, 2012). This article was recently published in the peer reviewed journal, Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology. The primary goal of this project was to successfully present the article at the Society of Toxicology 51st Annual Meeting via poster presentation and to explore the field of toxicology via the Undergraduate Education Program in San Francisco, California. This project also included taking advantage of the networking opportunities available at an international scientific meeting.
