Hilary Godwin’s research focuses primarily on elucidating the molecular toxicology of engineered nanomaterials and the heavy metal lead. She has also worked on the impacts of conservation programs and policies on the health of indigenous populations and on community-based approaches to addressing environmental health problems. Godwin created a program at Northwestern University to recruit and retain students in the sciences, including underrepresented minorities, through a summer workshop, which targets entering freshmen who plan to enroll in general chemistry. In the workshop, students participate in collaborative research projects and build skills that will help them excel in general chemistry and subsequent science courses.
