Riad’s last day with UF. Congratulations again to Riad! (10/29/2021)
Our lab receives a new subcontract from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). The objective of this subcontract is to identify efficient sampling interval to effectively construct time-concentration profile of bisphenol A in the infant’s urine using a PBPK model. This new subcontract becomes part of the existing subcontract between CHOP and UF that is led by the PI Dr. Eric Coker. Dr. Lin is Co-PI of this subcontract. (10/06/2021)
