Cheryl Rosenfeld has spent five years researching bisphenol A (BPA) to discern its effect on development and behavior in mice.

The chemical is found in store receipts, cardboard and hard plastics, with more than 8 billion tons being manufactured every year.

Rosenfeld, a University of Missouri Bond Life Sciences Center researcher, hopes her work will help shed light on how BPA may affect us all throughout life.
