UMass researcher helping the EPA to determine health effects of spent rocket fuel

ng-water standard for this contaminant.

Zoeller's efforts with the EPA will reach into the classroom next fall, when he teaches endocrinology to undergraduates. The laboratory component will require students to design and perform an experiment using modern molecular techniques that address specific issues not addressed in the studies evaluated by the EPA. "This is an excellent educational opportunity for students to work on an issue of national significance, and perhaps even to have their findings published in the scientific press," said Zoeller. "And working on the thyroid hormone system will teach them a great deal about how the endocrine system works in general."
