His leadership on the plasma proteome and work on systems toxicology of nanoparticles are recognized as major contributions to current PNNL science themes. Pounds is a frequently invited presenter at national and international conferences and is also a dedicated mentor to younger colleagues at the Laboratory. He will be recognized and present an overview of his research at a ceremony September 1 at PNNL.
