Studying for the #MCAT? Take heart in that you're not alone. Read a few tips by one #NIH #NCCIH postbac:
Living a double life has always been an enticing, romantic idea. Take the heroic Peter Parker, for instance: gawky, geeky scientist by day; buff superhero Spiderman by night. Though not quite as glamorous, I too know the taste of duplicity created by two lives’ worth of responsibility. MCAT prep can be an artistic photo opportunity.

IRP scientist Lisa Cunningham studies the inner ear in an effort to reduce and prevent the hearing loss that occurs as a side effect of the ototoxic drugs in some chemotherapies.
Dr. Cunningham leads an expert team working to understand the cellular and molecular responses to stress in the inner ear.

New #NIEHS research found that low-level arsenic exposure before birth associated with early puberty and obesity in female mice. The finding is significant because the exposure level of 10 parts per billion used in the study is the current U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standard, or maximum allowable amount, for arsenic in drinking water. https://irp.nih.gov/news-and-events/in-the-news/low-level-arsenic-exposure-before-birth-associated-with-early-puberty-and-obesity-in-female-mice
