Newswise — In the June 2019 issue of Toxicological Sciences, his final as Editor-in-Chief, Gary W. Miller reflects on the importance of reproducibility in science—the same topic of his first editorial in 2014. The issue also contains featured papers on dieldrin exposure and dopamine gene DNA methylation; using microelectrode arrays to study chemical effects in cortical neuron networks; sex effects in ozone-mediated airway dysfunction; and ach’ase reactivators and reduced hippocampal organophosphate toxicity. Additionally, there are open access articles on an improved acute fish toxicity assay and on calcium storage and OP-diisopropyl fluorophosphate-based toxicity.
Highlights of Toxicological Sciences Volume 169, Issue 2 include:
- Editorial: Reproducibility Revisited: Reflections of an Editor
