Distinguished professor Bruce Hammock of the University of California, Davis, has received a $6 million, eight-year “Outstanding Investigator” federal grant for his innovative and visionary environmental health research.
The award is part of the Revolutionizing Innovative, Visionary Environmental Health Research (RIVER) Program of the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). This award is based on a track record of innovation and a ‘visionary' proposal to address serious problems in environmental health.
Hammock, who holds a joint appointment with the UC Davis Department of Entomology and Nematology and the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Society, is known for his expertise in chemistry, toxicology, biochemistry and entomology. He meshes all four sciences in his 50-year research on how environmental chemicals impact human health.
