I received my B.Sc. in Environmental Toxicology from University of Guelph, Guelph, Canada in 1997. I began my studies here at Rutgers in September 1998. My project currently involves developing a screen to detect estrogenic compounds in root extracts. The screen utilizes an estrogen sensitive cell line from a rat pituitary tumor that has been immortalized. This screen will have the capacity to detect phytoestrogens and antiestrogens in the root extracts.
