ABSTRACT

In her video, Dr. Mattingly discusses the field of toxicology and the complex effects of the environment on your health. She discusses DDT, a pesticide used in the mid-1900s that was banned in 1972, and what happens when a chemical is persistent in our environment. She brings this into current events as she discusses PFAS, including Teflon and Gore-Tex, sharing the story of contamination of the Cape Fear River in North Carolina. We're doing a lot about PFAS at NC State, and it requires a diverse group of experts with diverse skills and backgrounds.

Carolyn Mattingly, Ph.D., earned a B.A. in art history (Oberlin College) and a Ph.D. in molecular toxicology (Tulane University). She is a Distinguished Professor, a University Faculty and Scholar and serves as head of the Department of Biological Sciences in the College of Sciences.
