|ULM professor receives $65,000 grant|
A ULM toxicology professor is doing her part to ensure the safety of clean-up crews at retired military bases.
Sharon A. Meyer, Ph.D., associate professor of toxicology at ULM, was awarded a $65,000 grant from the Department of Defense U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This new funding allows Meyer to continue a 10-year collaboration with researchers of Waterways Experimental Station, a facility operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Vicksburg.
The grant, issued by the Department of Defense U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, will fund Meyer's research into the health effects of environmental contaminants derived from military chemicals. She utilizes rodents as test subjects in her experiments.
Meyer's previous results have been published in the peer-reviewed journal PLoS ONE. Of the new grant, she said, "Results from these and previous studies will aid in limiting toxicant exposure of personnel charged with clean-up of contaminated military sites."
ULM's Department of Toxicology awards the only Bachelor of Science degree in Toxicology in the southeastern U.S.
