Luke Montrose, assistant professor for the Department of Community and Environmental Health, recently had two manuscripts published.
Montrose was lead author for “Neonatal lead exposure and DNA methylation profiles in dried blood spots,” co-written with eight co-authors from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor, East Lansing and Michigan State University Grand Rapids. The article was published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health and focused on a study designed to gain insights into early life lead exposure-induced health risks.
Montrose’s second publication, “Influence of woodsmoke exposure on molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease: existing literature and gaps in our understanding,” was published in the Journal of Epigenetics Insights. Boise State PhD in Biomolecular Sciences student Adam Schuller was the lead author for this piece, which explored the literature relating woodsmoke-generated and ambient air pollution exposure to Alzheimer’s disease onset or exacerbation.
