Ashland toxicology graduates to enter PhD programs

Daphne Guinn
Two of our toxicology majors will be entering graduate school this Fall to begin studies towards their PhD degrees.  Daphne Guinn has taken part in several research studies while an undergraduate student at Ashland University, including work on the toxic effects of metals in children's toys and costume jewelry, and the effects of chemical mixtures.  Daphne will be entering the Integrated Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program at The Ohio State University where she will be focusing on the Biology of Human Diseases.

Phillip Wages
Phillip Wages has performed undergraduate research at Ashland University on the development of the eye lens using a small fish called the zebrafish, while also investigating the toxic effects of pesticide and herbicide mixtures for his University honors thesis.  Phillip will be entering the Biomedical and Biological Sciences Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Our undergraduate toxicology program at Ashland University is one of only a handful in the country.  Graduates from the program go on to pursue advanced research degrees, enter medical school and other health professional programs and gain employment as laboratory technicians.
