Toxicology professor publishes two research papers with Ashland students

Dr. Douglas Dawson, a professor of Biology and Toxicology at Ashland University, recently published two new articles resulting from his research with students Jonathan Jeyaratnam (Biology '08) and Tabitha Mooneyham (Toxicology '07).  The articles, published in the journal Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, investigated how chemicals found in mixtures affect each other's toxicity.  This research was done in collaboration with scientists from the University of Tennessee and the University of Graz in Austria.

Dr. Dawson's research is funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health, which provides support to pay Ashland undergraduate science students as summer research assistants, and bring them to national meetings to present their work.
