Fourth Environmental Health Science Cluster Hire Joins NC State and CHHE

Dr. Mike Cowley joined North Carolina State University in October 2014 as a Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program cluster hire in Environmental Health Science. He is a member of the interdisciplinary Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE), and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. The overall goal of Dr Cowley’s work is to understand how environmental factors, such as diet, can influence our health by modulating gene activity. For example, we know that over-nutrition can lead […]

A Collaborative Workshop on Aquatic Models and 21st Century Toxicology

The need to screen thousands of environmental toxicants and small molecules, on human health has propelled the use of high-throughput cell-based screens to the forefront of toxicology. Yet these studies are limited by the availability of a model organism that recapitulates the development, physiology and disease processes present in humans without the burden of high maintenance costs and extensive husbandry, limited fecundity, lack of genetic diversity and societal opposition that diminish the utility of many rodent-based models currently in use. To […]
