On April 28, 2017, EOHSI’s scientists Judith Graber, Robert Laumbach, and Clifford Weisel were part of the prestigious set of speakers and panelists selected to present during the Environmental Justice and the Future of Environmental Health Research Symposium at the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center.
Click on the embedded video below to watch the “Our Environment, Our Health: Engaging Researchers and Empowering Communities” presentation by Linda Birnbaum, Director of the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences and National Toxicology Program.
Currently, Dr. Jeffrey Laskin, director of the Rutgers University CounterACT Research Center of Excellence, leads a team conducting research on the exposure and health effects of chemical warfare agents used by terrorists. The researchers are determined to develop medical countermeasures.
Specifically, Laskin, a distinguished professor and chief of the toxicology division at the Rutgers Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute, said their research focuses on countermeasures that would help people who have come in contact with sulfur mustard, also known as mustard gas.
