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 is an Assistant Professor in the Oregon State University Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology . Brander retains an adjunct appointment at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, where she was tenure-track faculty from 2013-2017.
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!
Brander is recruiting a graduate student for Fall 2019.
