Ian Moran, a Graduate Fellow in the Department of Environmental and Molecular
Toxicology, recently discussed his research during an Environmental & Molecular Toxicology seminar.
Ian has recently focused on pollutants found in creosote. Creosote is a wood treatment product, tar

While only approximately 1 inch long, zebrafish are remarkably similar to humans. Understandably, their size and appearance may cause doubt about how much information they can give us about human health impacts of chemical exposures. To help explain the use of zebrafish and other unique research tools within our Superfund Research Program, we developed two educational infographics for public distribution.

When a wildfire breaks out public health recommendations are to stay indoors and close all windows, but is that the best advice? Toxicology researchers at Oregon State University are very interested in understanding the effect of wildfires on indoor and outdoor air quality. Dr. Kim Anderson and her team have been collecting samples before, during and after wildfires in the Pacific Northwest using community-engaged research for the last three years to help improve public health recommendations.
