Turesky Lab Publication Recognized by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences

September 19, 2023


Congratulations to Medicinal Chemistry's Dr. Robert Turesky and his research team for having their recent paper selected as an NIEHS extramurally funded paper of the month for September 2023:

Bellamri, M.; Brandt, K.; Cammerrer, K.; Syeda, T.; Turesky, R. J.; Cannon, J. R., Nuclear DNA and Mitochondrial Damage of the Cooked Meat Carcinogen 2-Amino-1-methyl-6-phenylimidazo[4,5-b]pyridine in Human Neuroblastoma Cells. Chem Res Toxicol 2023, 36 (8), 1361-1373.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is located within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and is focused on expanding and accelerating its contributions to scientific knowledge of human health and the environment, and to the health and well-being of people everywhere.

"The research provides mechanistic data on the potential role of cooked meat mutagens in Parkinson's disease," Dr. Turesky commented. “Madjda Bellamri was the lead scientist on this project and I am very proud of the hard work that she, Kyle Brandt, and Kari Cammerrer did on this project in collaboration with Dr. Jason Cannon's group at Purdue University. Congratulations, everyone!"

We are always happy to see the hard work of our scientists being recognized on the national level.
