Biology and Toxicology majors present research at SOT national meeting

Four of our students recently returned from the Annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology in Washington D.C..  Nicole Genco, Heather Bensinger and Daphne Guinn each presented research done with their faculty mentor, Dr. Douglas Dawson, a professor of biology and toxicology at Ashland University.  Heather's work was also done in collaboration with Ashland chemistry professor Dr. Robert Bergosh.  These projects were funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Merck/AAAS Foundation.

Phillip Wages' research presentation at the meeting was supported by a travel award from Pfizer, one of only five awarded nationwide each year.

Pictured from left to right are Dr. Douglas Dawson, Nicole Genco (Biology '12), Heather Bensinger (Toxicology '11), Daphne Guinn (Toxicology '11) and Phillip Wages (Toxicology '11) in front of two of their posters.
