I currently do research on Benzo(a)pyrene and its reproductive effects on the Fundulus heteroclitus fish species. We want to see how the contaminant messes with CYP19 and affects the hypothalamus pituitary gonadal axis. My major advisor is Dr. Kristine Willett and the expected date of completion is 2014 with a degree in environmental toxicology.
