Bisphenol A (BPA) has been used in the synthesis of polycarbonate plastics over the years. BPA is also a powerful estrogen analog. Three researchers, Patricia Hunt (Washington State Univ.), Ana Soto (Tufts) and Carlos Sonnenschein (Tufts), will today be awarded the 2012 Jacob Heskel Gabbay Award for their work identifying the cellular and developmental effects of BPA exposure. The three will lecture today, Oct. 22, at 3:30 pm in Rapaporte Treasure Hall, Goldfarb Library.
