Abstract

Tori Llewelyn investigated delivery of chemicals through the skin of frogs, with the rate and extent of absorption found to differ depending on the frog's habitat. Tori developed the first model of absorption that will both inform the design of treatments for disease in frogs, and also advise risk-management in frog habitats.
