Student collaborating with faculty member earns Goldwater Scholarship

Working with Dr. Christopher Martyniuk, Cole English was one of five UF Students to have received the Goldwater Scholarship. This is the first time in history all 5 winners were from UF. It is a premier scholarship for those wishing to pursue research driven STEM careers. In Martyniuk’s lab, English is investigating the effects of emerging contaminants, like pharmaceuticals, perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, and microplastics on the zebrafish model to delineate their molecular mechanisms of toxicity following exposure to environmentally relevant levels of the chemicals. English plans to obtain a PhD in Chemistry and Chemical Biology.
