The Center for Human Health and the Environment has received a $6.5 million NIEHS grant to investigate the effects of environmental factors on human health.
Cross-Population Study Links Individuals’ Chemical Sensitivity, Genes
NC State scientists helped lead the first large-scale cell-based screening to test variations in environmental chemical sensitivity across a range of human populations and link those variations to genetic data.
Shrinking Habitats Have Adverse Effects on World Ecosystems
An extensive study of global habitat fragmentation led by an NC State biologist points to major trouble for a number of the world’s ecosystems and the plants and animals living in them.
New Project Tackles Genetic Switchboard for DNA
The Genotype-Tissue Expression project aims to explain links between genetic variation and disease.
The Butterfly Effect: Insect’s Wings Key to Azalea Pollination
An NC State biologist has found that in the case of the flame azalea, all pollinators are not created equal.
Early Lead Exposure Affects Gene Expression Throughout Life
The study, led by NC State biologists, sheds more light on the long-term effects of early lead exposure on DNA and may help to develop therapies to treat or reverse the damage.
The Ecology of the Future and the Future of Ecology
NC State biologists are working with underrepresented college students and designing citizen science tools to give middle school students everywhere the chance to be involved in scientific discovery.
Tail As Old As Time – Tracing Ankylosaur’s Tail Evolution
How did the ankylosaur get its distinctive tail club? The handle arrived first, and the knot at the end followed.
