Acrylamide is a known neurotoxin in humans, and is classified by the World Health Organisation as a probable human carcinogen.

Humans are exposed to this toxin in a chronic manner, as it is present in many of the foods consumed by a vast majority of the human population. Caitlin will use the scholarship to explore the effects of acrylamide exposure on male reproductive cells and investigate the effects of paternal acrylamide exposure on future offspring.
