Cell & Molecular Neuroscience at Lincoln Center Campus
MARY G. HAMILTON, Ph.D., Emerita Professor of Chemistry and Coordinator for undergraduate research, Department of Natural Science, the effects of Heavy Metal Toxicity on Limulus embryos by examining the levels of two SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD)s

MARK L.BOTTON, Ph.D. Professor of Biology, Department of Natural Science, the effects of Heavy Metal Toxicity on Limulus embryos by examining the levels of two SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD)s.

DEBORAH LUCKETT C. Luckett, Ph.D., Lecturer in Biology, Department of Natural Science, Research involved in premature aging disorders.

YEVGENIYA ALKAYEVA, Ph.D., Laboratory Coordinator, the innovative synthesis of picolinic and nicotinic acids. Picolinic acid is an antagonist to the neurotoxic properties quinolinic acid in the central nervous system. Nicotinic Acid interferes with the neurotoxic effects of heavy metals involved in Parkinson’s Disease.
