Friend request accepted, part 5

By Savannah Volkoff

Our final installment for the summer blog series, “Friend Request Accepted” features PC12 cells, used by Ted Slotkin’s lab. These in vitro models help us study the effects of chemical exposure at a cellular level.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our summer series and have learned a few fun facts about the model organisms we use in our Superfund Research Center at Duke University. Stay tuned for more interesting blogs about our research!
