Two ITEHP students were invited to present on their research at the 13th International Conference on Environmental Mutagens in Ottawa, Canada this week!
Tess Leuthner, PhD (ITEHP class of ’22), presented her work entitled, “Resistance of mitochondrial DNA to cadmium and Aflatoxin B1-induced germline mutations over 50 generations of exposure in C. elegans“. To learn about Dr. Leuthner’s work, you can read her recently published article in Nucleic Acids Research here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35947695/
Dillon King, PhD Candidate, presented her work entitled, “Sex-specific DNA methylation and associations with in utero tobacco smoke exposure at nuclear-encoded mitochondrial genes”. Read Dillon’s research article in Epigenetics here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/35238269/
