• Grant allows BU student to study fishy problem

    From Lake Waco to the Brazos River to the creek running through the heart of campus, Baylor sometimes seems surrounded by water. (And that’s not including when a thunderstorm threatens to flood 5th Street…)

    Baylor grad student Laura Dobbins recently received funding from the EPA to study the life found in bodies of water like these–specifically, at how aquatic life is effected by certain chemicals found in many personal care products, pharmaceuticals and foods. Her method’s unique approach may allow future scientists to predict the effects of other contaminants on the environment.

    Sic ’em, Laura!
