Current research centers around the histopathology of chemically induced neoplasia in rainbow trout.  Specific research projects include: 1) Identifying natural inhibitors of carcinogenesis and understanding their mechanisms of action in rainbow trout; 2) Continued development of the rainbow trout as an alternate model system for toxicology and cancer research, emphasizing new exposure routes, timing of exposure to carcinogens and modifiers, temperature effects, dietary effects and histopathology of neoplastic development.
