We are awarded an R01 to study the metabolism, transport, and toxicity of benzalkonium chlorides from NIEHS!

In this project, we aim to define the pathways of metabolism and transport of the widely used disinfectant, benzalkonium chlorides (BACs), and elucidate interactions between the metabolism and transport capacity and kidney toxicity of BACs in vitro and in humans. This project involves collaboration with Prof. Allan Rettie at Med Chem and Profs. Joanne Wang, Ed Kelly, and Yvonne Lin at UW Pharmaceutics. Congrats to the team @Ryan @Vanessa @Marie!
