NHEERL Scientist Invited To Teach and Lecture in Brazil
David DeMarini, a genetic toxicologist in the NHEERL Integrated Systems Toxicology Division Genetic and Cellular Toxicology Branch in Research Triangle Park, NC, has been invited to participate in two events in Brazil from June 20-25, 2011. First, he will help teach a 2-day workshop in Limeira, São Paulo, titled “Writing Scientific Articles in English as a Foreign Language.” Dr. DeMarini will give several lectures there, including ones on publication procedures for scientific articles at a Federal agency, such as EPA, and how to write a scientific paper. He, too, will present examples of data from various publications of his work at EPA and show how these were prepared for publication, including how the review process works within EPA. Following that workshop, Dr. DeMarini will give a talk on “Genotoxicity of Swimming Pool Water and Risk for Bladder Cancer from Drinking Water” in a symposium at the 17th Brazilian Congress of Toxicology in Ribeiro Preto.
