Drs. Zemin Wang and James Klaunig’s paper “Mechanistic Investigation of Toxaphene Induced Mouse Liver Tumors”  was recently accepted by Toxicological Sciences and is available at http://toxsci.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2015/08/20/toxsci.kfv151.abstract .

Dr. Shawn Gibbs conducts research in industrial hygiene and environmental exposure assessment. That work resulted in a grant proposal by the University of Nebraska, Emory University and Bellevue Hospital, that became the National Ebola Training and Education Center, funded for $12 Million by the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Center will serve as a national resource to help various hospitals prepare for their role in addressing the occurrences of highly infectious diseases in the U.S.  Gibbs will continue his work with the National Ebola Training and Education Center, serving as an activity co-director, focusing on providing hospitals and states with expert training and technical assistance as they prepare facilities to treat highly infectious patients.
