Tuesday, February 27, 2018
4:30 p.m.-5:30 a.m.
2016 GHI Seed Grant Recipient Peter McIntyre, assistant professor in the Center for Limnology, discusses his project on tracing the global scope of mercury contamination of inland subsistence fisheries, ecological patterns, health threats and source tracking. This project, funded by a Global Health Institute Seed Grant, addresses an unrecognized facet of the cycle of poverty: contamination of food fish with neurotoxins such as mercury.
