Great news! A recently-submitted manuscript entitled “Cerium oxide nanoparticles exhibit minimal cardiac and cytotoxicity in the freshwater fish Catostomus commersonii” has been accepted for peer-reviewed publication, and is currently in press at the Elsevier journal, Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part C: Toxicology & Pharmacology.
The study was carried out by members of the MacCormack Lab and Dieni Research Group, and is a follow-up to previous studies using the benthic white sucker as a model organism, many of which have focused on another environmentally-relevant engineered nanomaterial (ENM): zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles.
We hope to have a link to the electronic version of this publication soon. An electronic version of the publication is available here. We also currently have two other manuscripts in various stages of review, and hope to have updates on these in the near future. Keep an eye on this website for new developments.
