Carole was thrilled to be co-chair of the 13th International Conference on Environmental Mutagens with GReAT lab collaborators Francesco Marchetti and Paul White. The conference was held in Ottawa from Aug. 27 - Sept. 1, 2022. This meeting, held once every four years, brings together all of the Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Societies from across the globe together. The GReAT lab and collaborators were there in force! Here we are at the Gala dinner in the Museum of History. A highlight was MSc candidate Elizabeth Huliganga bringing home a best poster prize (2nd place) for her work 'A case study on integrating a new key event into an existing adverse outcome pathway on oxidative DNA damage: challenges and approaches in a data-rich area.' Congrats Elizabeth!!!
GReAT students rocked the annual North American Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society meeting in Sept. 2021.
Platform presentations were given by Eunnara Cho and Tatiana Kozbenko.
Poster presentations were given by Annette Dodge, Anne-Marie Fortin and Geronimo Parodi-Matteo.
Huge congrats to our award winners at the conference: Anne-Marie for best student poster prize; and Tatiana Kozbenko for best student platform presentation!
The lab is thrilled to have collaborated with Health Canada to win the Toxicological Sciences Paper of the Year award for 2021!
The lab has been featured in two online news pieces and on BEaTs radio this fall. Check out Carole's interview on BEaTs here:

The lab is excited to have two of our articles featured in Inside TSCA, a monthly newsletter published by Chemical Watch summarizing the most importantly toxicology news of the month. Chemical Watch is a leading global provider of "independent intelligence and insight for product safety professionals managing chemicals." The first feature is on important work led by Anthony Reardon evaluating the toxicity of different per- and poly-fluoroalkylated substances (including PFOS and PFOA) in human liver organoids. The second is on international work co-led by Carole to develop reporting frameworks to share toxicogenomic data with regulatory partners. Congrats to the team!!
