Science Thursdays 

Professional Development through a Community of Practice

               Science Thursdays is a community of practice approach to professional development.  

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.  

The Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center is interested in forming a community of practice with Tucson Unified School District science teachers to focus on incorporating current science into high school science teaching practice, face-to-face and virtually.



Please take 10 - 15 minutes and complete the survey about the first event.

Kids Bee Study Video 



    October 28th   Nathan J Cherrington, PhD 

        Area of Research: studying molecular mechanisms of liver toxicity and  employing a   

      functional genomics approach based on flexible small-scale arrays to measure the expression

      of xenobiotic transporter and drug metabolism genes. Specifically, thousands of people suffer

      from liver  diseases such as biliary cirrhosis, steatosis, hepatitis or what is commonly

                                    referred to as chronic liver failure            Click here to see details

  November 18th Jay Gandolfi, PhD    

    Area of Research: determine how to best minimize mine dust and water that drains from landfills,

    evaluate how to stabilize arsenic residuals generated during water treatment, and continue to monitor how

    trichloroethylene, or TCE, contaminants move in the subsurface and groundwater. They also will develop

    models to predict pollutant distribution in both air and water         Click here to see details






   January Clark Lantz, PhD   

    Area of ResearchExposure to environmental toxicants alters lung structure and function

    and leads to impairment  of the pulmonary defense mechanisms in the lung. Current investigations are

    examining the effects of arsenic exposure, tobacco smoke and uranium exposure.
