Dr. Nicklisch, Tina Truong, and Zeke Spooner (from left to right).
Congratulations to Zeke and Tina for being awarded 1st and 2nd place in Platform Presentation at the 2023 NORCAL SETAC Annual Meeting in Sacramento, CA.
Zeke, an incoming AgChem graduate student, presented his research idea on “Characterizing Microplastic Leachate Accumulation in Wild California Rockfish,” while Tina, a current undergraduate student, presented her research idea on “Life stage-dependent ABC Transporter Expression Levels and Okadaic Depuration Rates in Mytilus californianus.“
If you would like to learn more about either of these research projects, do not hesitate to reach out to us!
Zeke received the Citation for Outstanding Performance in Environmental Toxicology 2023 for outstanding undergraduate students who have truly distinguished themselves, through academic excellence, leadership, and their involvement in research.
Recent graduate Lily Hinh presented her poster titled Impacts of Transporter-Chemical Interactions and the Importance of a Database at the CBS Dean’s Circle Undergraduate Research Conference. Her poster highlights her work supporting database development and data curation and made the case for cataloguing transporter-chemical interactions in a centralized and all-inclusive database.
Cristela receives 2020 SACNAS Award for Outstanding Research Presentation for her project on “The Role of Multiethnic P-Glycoprotein Drug Transporter Variants in Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neurotoxicity (CIPN)” at the National Diversity in STEM Conference.
