PHATS goes large !
Holly joins the PHATS team
Holly Armstrong is doing a PhD to understand stress at the cell level in seals. She worked with the PHATS team back in October through DEcember helping Kelly to prepapre and process tissue explants and blood samples. She's joined us again for three months to work on those seal fat explants to understand seal blubber tissue responses to pollutants and stress hormones. She will apply the molecular tools she has developed to measure cellular stress. Her work will help us find out if pollutants prevent the the seal cells from being able to respond appropriately to other stressors.Back to News
