Dr. Susanne Brander Seminar

New faculty hire in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology (EMT) Dr. Susanne Brander, will be presenting a seminar on her research Nov. 1, 2018;  noon - 1 pm in ALS 4001:

"Using model estuarine organisms to assess environmental stress across biological scales"

Dr. Susanne Brander studies the responses of aquatic organisms to environmental stressors across biological scales, with a focus on discerning mechanisms of toxicity and linking results of laboratory experiments and field data to population-level responses. Recent work examines the impacts of endocrine disrupting compounds on gene and protein expression, fecundity, and sex ratio. Current projects include an evaluation of multi-generational responses to toxicants in the context of global climate change and a study on the trophic transfer of microplastics. Brander has recently published in Scientific Reports, Environmental Science & Technology, Aquatic Toxicology, and Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry.
