Anne Bozack wins a 2017 K.C. Donnelly Externship Award

Anne Bozack

Congratulations to Anne Bozack who is one of eight recipients of the 2017 K.C. Donnelly Externship Award. Bozack is a doctoral candidate and trainee at the Columbia University Superfund Research Program (SRP) Center under Dr. Mary Gamble. For her externship, Bozack will work with environmental epidemiologist Dr. Molly Kile at the Oregon State University SRP Center. Bozack is currently investigating the effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and arsenic exposure on DNA methylation, a common marker of epigenetic changes, which alter the way DNA is expressed. The externship will extend her current work by focusing on statistical approaches for characterizing complex PAH mixtures and methods to analyze how the association between arsenic exposure and birth outcomes is modified by DNA methylation in a cohort in Bangladesh. The K.C. Donnelly Externship Award was established by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) SRP in memory of longtime SRP grantee Dr. K.C. Donnelly. It provides current SRP-funded graduate students and postdoctoral researchers with translational/transdisciplinary opportunities and experiences within other SRP-funded centers, government laboratories (EPA, ATSDR, NIEHS), or other agencies (state, local, Tribal).
