Gluten-Free Event at the Lebanon Co-op
Representatives from the Dartmouth Superfund Research Program will be on hand at the Lebanon Co-op during their Gluten-Free Event on Thursday, May 16, 2013 from 3 - 6. Many people rely on rice and rice products as an alternative to wheat when eating a gluten-free diet.
Dartmouth Superfund Recognizes Drinking Water Week
The Dartmouth Superfund Program participated in a Water Festival held at the Water Treatment Plant in Concord, NH on May 8th as part of the celebration of Drinking Water Week from May 5-11. Our Research Translation and Community Engagement Cores teamed up to provide an exhibit on arsenic in private well water for 350 4th graders. While most of the students drink safe and clean city water, they learned that their friends and family in other parts of NH may drink water from private wells which need to be tested by the homeowner. Remember to TEST YOUR WELL!
Dartmouth Researcher Publishes Paper in Nature
Dr. Guerinot, of the Dartmouth Superfund Program, has published a paper in Nature entitled "Using membrane transporters to improve crops for sustainable food production".The article discusses the need for sustainable nutritious food for the growing world population and how specialized plant membrane transporters can be used to increase crop yields and increase nutrient content and increase resistance to key stresses, including salinity, pathogens and aluminium toxicity, which in turn could expand available arable land.
Mercury: From Source to Seafood Accepted To Film Festival
Dartmouth Toxic Metals short film "Mercury: From Source to Seafood" was accepted to the Beneath the Waves Film Festival, which hopes to facilitate widespread science communication by bringing together marine films from around the world for open discussion, while also providing hands-on educational opportunities for researchers interested in film and media outreach. Stay tuned for details on Film Festival premiere.
