UAA Faculty Recognized for Research
University of Alaska Anchorage researchers Dr. Frank von Hippel and Dr. Loren Buck have teamed up with University of Oregon researchers Dr. John Postlethwait and Dr. William Cresko to study the effects of Perchlorate on stickleback fish. Their recent National Institutes of Health grant (R01) was recognized in an article in the Anchorage Daily News: Alaskan is pioneer of contaminant research.
This prestigious grant of $2.8 million was awarded to study the effects of perchlorate on humans by analyzing the three-spined stickleback fish for thyroid changes and hermaphrodite tendencies.
Alaska INBRE is proud of their accomplishments.
