Dr. Bommanna Loganathan

    Dr. Bommanna Loganathan is a Professor of environmental/analytical chemistry with a joint appointment in the Department of Chemistry and WSI. He received MS and Ph.D. degrees in Biology and Environmental Chemistry from Annamalai University, India and Ehime University, Matsuyama, Japan respectively. Dr. Loganathan received postdoctoral training at the Great Lakes Laboratory, State University of New York College at Buffalo, NY and at the Murray State University. Dr. Loganathan's current research involves investigations on the distribution, environmental transformation, and fate of persistent organic pollutants in the environment and their effect on wildlife and human health. A major focus of his research is to evaluate the status and trends of classical as well as emerging pollutants in human constructed freshwater lakes, such as Kentucky Lake, in comparison with natural lakes and marine ecosystems and to assess effects of these compounds on human natural killer cells' ability to kill cancer cells using in vitro assays.
