Papers of the Month

Researchers from within NIEHS (Division of Intramural Research) publish many peer-reviewed articles in a variety of journals each year. The NIEHS highlights some of these publications and their importance to the advancement of science by choosing a select few each month as one of the Papers of the Month. Members of ESCBL were recognized in this way multiple times over the last few years, and are listed below.
