Undergraduate Research: Currently students are working on projects associated with Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCP’s) in surface waters and their affects on the freshwater clam Corbicula. An assortment of PPCP’s have been found in surface waters across the United States, though little is known of their affects on the aquatic community. Projects include both in lab work on toxicity and as well as field projects on clam distribution and populations in different streams in Wake county.
