About This Project
Benzene is a toxic compound found in air polluted from cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and industry. It is known to be associated with oncogenesis, specifically the development of leukemia and lymphoma. Therefore, we want to engineer the lung microbial community to absorb, degrade, and neutralize benzene along with a potential delivery device for this project. We will be periodically meeting with industry experts to determine our product’s future applications.
