Toxic Testing


We are bombarded by thousands of chemicals every year. The Environmental Protection Agency tests these chemicals to determine if they have detrimental effects, but many go untested. Dr. Steve Stice wants to make it faster and easier to test these so we can understand if and how these chemicals contribute to diseases. Dr. Stice is a Georgia Research Eminent Scholar and Professor of Animal and Dairy Science in UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
