The Brander lab’s research encompasses the fields of toxicology, endocrinology, and ecology; integrating molecular approaches with measurements at the organism and population level. Our main focus is on the effects of stressors such as emerging pollutants, plastics, and changing climate on aquatic organisms, but our work spans the links between ecological and human health.

Brander has been an Assistant Professor in the Oregon State University Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology since fall 2017. Brander retains an adjunct appointment at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, where she was tenure-track faculty from 2013-2017.

Brander is also a member of the OSU Fisheries and Wildlife Department and the OSU Marine Studies Initiative, and is affiliate faculty in the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing.

We are excited to be welcoming two NEW lab members to OSU in Fall 2019, Ph.D. student Sara Hutton, and Masters student Anna Bolm!!

Brander may be recruiting a graduate student for 2020, depending on funding.
