Miao Li gives KC Donnelly Talk at Superfund Research Program Conference!

Miao Li

Miao Li, Univeversity of Iowa Human Toxicology recent graduate, gave an oral presentation about his KC Donnelly Externship experience at the Superfund Research Program National Conference in Durham, NC. While at the University of Iowa, he investigated the mechanism of toxicity of airborne PCBs through their metabolic activation and the resultant formation of protein adducts.

This project required extremely sensitive detection methods. During the externship in the laboratory of Dr. Nakamura at UC Berkeley, Li had the opportunity to use state-of-the-art techniques and equipment to identify the profile of the target proteins of PCB metabolite reactivity. Publications of the results of this fruitful collaboration are currently in preparation.

Miao is currently a post-doctoral fellow at Kansas State University.
