From the benchtop to the beach: Assessing responses to environmental stress in marine and estuarine organisms

Thursday, February 22, 2018 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

The Brander lab’s research encompasses the fields of toxicology, endocrinology, and ecology; integrating molecular approaches with measurements at the organism and population level. In this talk I will discuss current work examining the impact of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) on gene and protein expression, behavior, sex ratio, and population dynamics. Recent work investigated fish responses to combined exposure to EDCs and increased temperatures associated with global climate change. We are also examining the potential for transgenerational effects following early life exposure to pollutants, studying the trophic transfer of microplastics, and assessing the sensitivity of a deep-sea fish species to oil-associated toxicants.
