Dr. David Duffy and Lab's Environmental DNA Research in USA Today Story
Published: Tuesday, August 30, 2022
Congratulations to Dr. David Duffy and his lab for being highlighted in the USA Today story about research on Environmental DNA.
Duffy hopes their work will shed light on what causes the tumors to spread, why the tumors afflict some turtles more than others – and may hold a key to unlocking those same questions in human tumors.
