Affiliations and Interactions

Columbia University

Dr. David Brenner, Ph.D., D. Sc.

Member of NASA Specialized Center of Research on gastrointestinal carcinogenesis.

Director, Center for Radiological Research

Director, Center for High Throughput Minimally Invasive Radiation Biodosimetry (U19)

Dr. Brenner focuses on developing mechanistic models for the effects of ionizing radiation on living systems, both at the chromosomal and the animal (or human) levels.

 

Health Canada

Carole Yauk, PhD

Lead Scientist, Genomics Laboratory, Health Canada, Ottawa

Adjunct Professor of Biology, Carleton University, Ottawa

Dr. Yauk’s research focuses primarily on the use of genomics and other novel approaches to improve human health risk assessment for chemical exposures. Applications of genomics in her laboratory include hazard identification (using in vitro models), mode of action analysis, risk assessment, and identifying and assessing heritable genetic hazards.

 

Dr. Yauk's Lab

 

Johns Hopkins University

Dr. Thomas Hartung

An important focus is  the translation of concepts of evidence-based medicine to toxicology (evidence-based toxicology). This aims for systematic assessment of the quality of all tools for regulatory toxicology and the development of new approaches based on annotated pathways of toxicity (the Human Toxome). CAAT

Paul Meltzer, M.D., Ph.D.

Member of NASA Specialized Center of Research on gastrointestinal carcinogenesis.

Dr. Meltzer is a leader in the application of genome science to cancer research. His recent studies investigate the genetic and epigenetic basis of cancers in adult and pediatric patients, particularly those with bone and soft tissue sarcomas. Dr. Meltzer's long-term goal is to improve diagnosis and therapy through better understanding of the mechanisms driving tumor growth.

Northeastern University

Dr. Vouros, Dr. Coy

Dr. Vouros and Dr. Coy are focusing on the application of DMS-MD technology in the rapid quantification of metabolites from biofluids for radiation biodosimetry purposes.
