Our laboratory provides space for members of the Department of Psychiatry and Psychology to conduct basic research studies using the latest genetic technologies. We analyze genes for mutations, polymorphisms, and gene expression. The core effort in this laboratory is to characterize genomic determinants of treatment responsiveness in psychiatric patients and cancer patients.
The noxious goo created a slimy sheen on top of the waterway that shimmered in the morning light as a saddened Vogel snapped a photo, then went to work trying to fix it. But torrential downpours last week sent raw sewage barreling through Combined Sewer Overflows — an antiquated draining system that mixes storm water and sewage — into the canal. And, for the first time since the cleanup, the onslaught mingled with the black mayo and oozed into the small area that was supposed to have been saved, Vogel, captain of the Gowanus Dredgers Canoe Club, says. The problem, explains local blogger Katia Kelly, is that the pollution might eventually sink and settle on top of the caps meant to keep black mayo from mingling in the canal waters and essentially undo the cleanup. Vogel, a member of the community advisory group that works with the EPA, reported the goo to the federal agency, which promised to consider installing a barrier, or boom, to keep more of the noxious stuff out. Is it possible? The future of the Fourth Street Basin, and the rest Gowanus Canal, may be as murky as the waters themselves.
