In this study we investigated the effects of both EGFR and IGF1R deletion after small bowel resection as it relates to adaptation. We found that by using double knockout mice there were no significant differences present in rates of proliferation and apoptosis. The study is important because its findings further advances the Warner Lab towards their overall goal of developing a therapy that is more effective for patients who have suffered massive intestinal loss.

We determined genotypes of Egyptian agricultural workers exposed to chlorpyrifos. Organophosphorus pesticides, specifically chlorpyrifos primarily produces neurotoxic effects by inhibiting the enzyme acetyl cholinesterase. The study is important because the highest human exposures were reported in an Egyptian agricultural population. The prevalence of CYP 2B6 variants in Egyptian pesticide applicators suggests that genetic variants of CYP2B6 will serve as biomarkers of susceptibility to chlorpyrifos.

We microscopically researched abnormalities sanctioned in the tissues of the epithelial layers of the skin; conducted lab tests from samples of body fluids and secretions in order to determine various types of skin diseases as a first diagnosis for each case. We found the most prominent skin disease analyzed to be Basel Cell Carcinoma.
