I joined Dr. Shi’s lab in the Summer of 2016. I have a great interest in the effect of arsenic. Human beings are widely exposed to arsenic through drinking contaminated water. Our project is to understand the mechanism about how arsenic has effects on vascular-related diseases and cancers. Since many people who are exposed to arsenic also have a habit of drinking. We also want to learn more about the combine effect of arsenic and alcohol.
