Environmental Health Research & Expertise: 

Dr. Jani Ingram, PhD, a Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Northern Arizona University, investigates environmental contaminants with respect to their impact on health.  A major part of her research is focused on characterizing uranium and arsenic contamination in water, soil, plants and livestock.  A critical aspect of her research is to foster collaborations with the Native American community and leaders to build trust, obtain access to field samples and gain insights into their health concerns.
