December 22, 2014, Liz McCarthy
Biological Sciences professor Timothy Mousseau has made more than 30 trips to the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site in Ukraine since 1999. In the past few years, he has traveled a dozen times to the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear site in Japan to study the aftereffects of that catastrophe. Mousseau, as a part of UofSC’s Chernobyl Research Initiative, is focused on the health and environmental outcomes of radiation effects in wildlife.
