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.

Dr. Brander relocated to the Oregon State University Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology in fall 2017. Brander retains an adjunct appointment at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, where she was formerly based.

Brander is also affiliated with the OSU Fisheries and Wildlife Department and the OSU Marine Studies Initiative, and the Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing.

We are excited to be welcoming two new lab members to OSU in Fall 2018! Post-doctoral researcher Kaley Major, and Masters student Katherine Lasdin!
