This year's activity will also include an evening reception for all current and potential ASTS members and friends as well as sympathizers. Highlights of the evening will include a presentation by Dr. Aina Adeogun of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Please spread the word and mark your calendars!

Date: Tuesday, March 25, 2014 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

Location:
Sheraton Phoenix Downtown
340 N 3rd St
Phoenix, AZ 85004

Room: Paradise Valley

Presentation: Prof. Aina Adeogun, University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria: “Endocrine disrupting chemicals in the African Environment: Status and Challenges”

Abstract: There is growing concern worldwide on the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC's) on aquatic organisms and wildlife. Aquatic organisms are particularly vulnerable to exposure because their ecosystems act as sinks for a wide variety of pollutants and this has prompted the development of molecular assays to monitor environmental impacts. In Africa however, the mechanistic approach to elucidate such effects on the reproductive success of aquatic organisms is poorly understood in most states.
