I joined the Human Toxicology Program at the University of Iowa in 2008. Toxicology was one of my favorite subjects while I was studying in India and I wanted to pursue my higher studies in this field. I realized that the Interdisciplinary Program in Toxicology offered by University of Iowa could help me go further in this field.
