SOAR applications were accepted in March 2016 and evaluated by the committee, with the following two projects selected for funding:

  1. Mackenzie Bruce, “Does the herbicide 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid induce epigenetic changes in G12-Chinese Hamster Ovary cells?” ¬†with Dr. Hilde van Gijssel mentoring.
