I am a second year PhD student working in the Tilton lab. Currently, my research is focused on developing a co-culture model combining 3D primary human bronchial epithelial cells with macrophages to assess toxicity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons as either individual chemicals or mixtures...

Isabella Centurione Contact person by email

I'm primarily interested in the effects micro- and nanoplastics have on other chemicals in the environment, and my research focuses on the effects of these plastic particles to the toxicity of PAHs.

My goal through obtaining a PhD in Toxicology is to gain a greater understanding of biological and molecular processes as they relate to human health.

PhD Toxicology
Brittany Cunningham
Graduate Fellow

I am interested in the impacts of anthropogenic pollutants on aquatic organisms and environments. My current research focuses on the internalization and effects of micro and nanoplastics of varying size, shape, and chemical composition, on model freshwater, estuarine, and marine organisms.

Graduate Fellow
Contact person by email

I am a third year PhD student working in the Water Quality Toxicology Lab. My research is focused on using high-resolution mass spectrometry as a tool to characterize chemical contaminants in natural and human-made aqueous systems, including irrigation canals, rivers, and drinking water and...

I'm interested in studying if and how environmental stress (ie. thermal, light, etc.) during development affects susceptibility to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in zebrafish.

Sara Hutton Contact person by email

I study the multiple stressor effects of pollution and climate change in the model estuarine fish species Menidia beryllina. I am primarily interested in linking genetic data to adverse outcomes, such as altered behavior or fecundity, to inform computational models.

Mechanisms of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) toxicity in zebrafish

Brianna Rivera Contact person by email

Christian Rude
Graduate Fellow

I'm interested in using zebrafish to better understand the toxicity of polyclicaromatic hydrocarbons through transcriptomics, fate studies, and comparison to other models. 

Spencer Stinson Contact person by email

Reese Valdez Contact person by email

I am a PhD student studying under Dr. Susan Tilton.  My current research focuses on using a 3D respiratory model to better understand how pre-existing conditions, like asthma, impact the way polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are metabolized and if their toxicity is changed by the presence of...

PhD student - Toxicology
Lindsay Wilson

My research utilizes molecular and systems biology techniques to assess developmental toxicity of chemicals, primarily PAHs, in the zebrafish model. My key interests include transcriptomics, toxicokinetics, cross-species extrapolation, and in silico approaches to chemical screening...
