UpClose with Rebecca Klaper

What better way to start the New Year than with a new edition of UpClose? In this issue, Dr. Rebecca Klaper talks about what happens at the cellular level when aquatic species are exposed to pharmaceuticals and how scientists and policy makers use that information to assess the risks of these chemicals. As the director of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Great Lakes Genomic Center, much of Dr. Klaper's work investigates the impact of pharmaceuticals and other emerging contaminants on gene expression. She and her research team have also conducted studies to uncover location and temporal patterns of pharmaceutical pollution in Lake Michigan and to better understand the combined toxicity of chemical mixtures found in Lake Michigan.
