d even result in wounds that become chronic."
  • Prue Talbot, a professor of cell biology and neuroscience, will study the effects of specific chemicals in cigarette smoke on reproduction using human embryonic stem cells to model the earliest stages of prenatal development. The two-year $250,000 grant will support two graduate students/postdoctoral scholars. "We will determine if specific chemicals in cigarette smoke affect the earliest stages of human development, which are likely to be the stage of the life cycle most sensitive to chemicals in smoke," Talbot said. "We will also determine what cell processes in these cells are altered by smoke exposure."
  • Nicole zur Nieden, an assistant professor of cell biology and neuroscience, received a New Investigator Award to study the effects of cigarette smoke on the developing heart and skeleton using human stem cell models. The three-year $270,000 grant will fund a research specialist, supplies and zur Nieden's summer salary. "Mainstream and second hand smoke increase miscarriage and stillbirth rates," she said. "However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the actions of mainstream and second hand smoke in the developing heart and skeleton are poorly understood and need to be better defined to assess the risk of smoking on the development of embryos and fetuses. The intention of this proposal is to provide new information about the sensitivity of developing cells and organs to harm-reduction and conventional tobacco."
  • Nisana Anderson, a Ph.D. student working with Yinsheng Wang, a professor of chemistry; Andersen received a $30,000 Dissertation Research Award.
  • Chris Kieslich, a Ph.D. student working with Dimitrios Morikis, a professor of bioengineering; Kieslich received a $30,000 Dissertation Resea
