Project Gulf Impact
Dr. Vincent Wilson is a Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences at Louisiana State University, talks about the carcinogenic effects of the oil and chemical dispersants in the air that people are breathing all along the coast and inland.
Some of Dr. Wilson’s research interests include: toxicology of environmental pollutants and genotoxic agents; molecular genetic processes involved in carcinogenesis, mutagenesis, aging, and genetic diseases; environmental biomonitoring of genotoxic exposure to feral species; species-specific identification and microbial communities.
Project Gulf Impact‘s mission is to document the economic, environmental and human health impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This project seeks to provide a voice for residents of the Gulf and hopes to capture the social, political and environmental climate surrounding one of the greatest environmental disasters of our time.
