Chas EasleyEnvironmental Health ScienceMy lab is interested in developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD). Specifically we are interested in how preconception exposures to environmental toxicants impact proper development and lead to disease states in subsequent generations.cae25@uga.edu706-542-2725Visit site

Rachel Roberts-GalbraithCellular BiologyWe explore how regeneration proceeds successfully in nature, using freshwater flatworms called planarians as a model system. In particular, we are interested in how a planarian regenerates its central nervous system (CNS), making new neurons and connecting them faithfully again and again. robertsgalbraith@uga.edu706-542-9330Visit site
