Continuing a previous student’s work, 2011 summer researchers investigate the effects of nickel and cobalt exposure on lung cells.

Eshan Patel ‘13 and Victoria Ruff ‘14 are spending the summer working with Assistant Professor of Biology Mindy Reynolds researching the cytotoxic, genotoxic, and mutagenic effects of coexposure to nickel and cobalt.
