I joined the Human Toxicology Program at the University of Iowa in 2010. With the aim to investigate the adverse effects of xenobiotics on living organism through animal experiments, clinical survey and epidemiologic methods, toxicology is a basic science applicable to many other areas such as physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry and pathology. These are exactly what I look upon with enthusiasm.
