Michigan State University to lead $14 million Dioxin Research
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan State University scientists plan to lead a $14.1 million initiative to better understand how dioxins affect human health and identify new ways of removing them from the environment, the school announced Tuesday.
Researchers will use a five-year grant from the Superfund Research Program of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences to support multiple studies on the toxic industrial byproducts, the East Lansing school said.
"This class of compounds can be detected virtually everywhere in the world, and they can remain in the environment for decades," lead researcher Norbert Kaminski, director of the school's Center for Integrative Toxicology and a professor of pharmacology and toxicology, said in a statement.
