On October 11, Mr. Jayme Coyle defended his thesis “The Assessment of an In-vitro Model for Evaluating the Role of PARP in Ethanol-mediated Hepatotoxicity” before his graduate committee, as well as faculty and students in the USF College of Public Health.
“There is a need to characterize phase 1 metabolic enzyme expression profiles relevant to ethanol for CYP2E1 and ADH pathways to facilitate comparisons across toxicological models using transfected and untransfected HepG2 model,” said Coyle.
His thesis work also formed the basis of a recent research abstract proposal for the March 2014 Society of Toxicology meeting in Phoenix.
Mr. Coyle is earning a master of science in public health based in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health. The department offers more than 10 concentrations that lead to MPH, MSPH, and PhD degrees, as well several dual degrees, graduate certificates, and special programs. Most recently, the college launched an online master of public health degree in health, safety & environment.
