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 Lab

Dr. Yauk's Lab

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.

HESI

Our transcriptomics team and ILSI/HESI have had a long-standing collaboration and is the member of HESI eStar Committee (previously known as HESI Genomics Committee) since 2008. HESI is a nonprofit organization with the mission to engage scientists from academia, government, industry, research, and non-governmental organizations to identify and resolve global health and environmental issues. Working through the HESI eStar Committee, we have submitted our genotoxicity biomarker, TGx-DDI, to the US FDA Biomarker Qualification Program.

NCI

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.
