Vanessa awarded an NIH K08 Career Development Grant!

The Hale Lab is getting ready for more fun with microbes! Dr. Vanessa Hale was awarded a 5-year NIH Career Development Grant titled “Bladders and biomes: Environmental compounds as modifiers of microbiomes, metabolomes, and urothelium.” This work will focus on studying how gut and urine microbes metabolize environmental chemicals like benzo[a]pyrene (a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) and what impacts this metabolism has on the bladder.
