Mechanisms of Arsenic Induced Human Lung and Bladder Cancer
Currently there are no models and few data concerning the effects of metals in human bronchial and bladder cells. The objective of this research is to focus on one metal of significant public health concern, arsenic, and begin to develop this model. The research will study arsenic caused chromosome damage and arsenic-induced chromosomal instability. Arsenic is considered a particularly important and dangerous environmental chemical because it is carcinogenic to humans and exposure is widespread.
