Dr. Evelyn Talbot, who studies the effects of lead exposure, will be one of several presenters at a mini-symposium on the complexities of metals in chemical and biological systems and their impact on the environment and health.
Hosted by the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences, the 15th annual Metals in Biological and Chemical Systems mini-symposium will be held Friday, Sept. 13, from 1 to 6 p.m. in the Union’s Africa Room.
Talbot’s presentation, What is the Impact of Environmental Lead Exposure on Children’s Blood Lead Levels? Results of a CDC Linkage Project, will kick off the event.
The mini-symposium also exposes Duquesne students to trends in the field, according to Dr. John Stolz, director of the Center for Environmental Research and Education, and event co-organizer. In addition to five plenary sessions, the event will include a panel discussion with students.
The symposium is free and open to the public. Visit duq.edu/metals-symposium for more information and to register.
