"Adaptations of Embryos to Toxic Chemicals and Rapid Environmental Change:

Key roles of multidrug efflux transporters"

Hosted by Bren Associate Professor Hunter Lenihan


Dr. Amro Hamdoun is postdoctoral fellow for the National Institutes of Health as a National Research Service Award recipient. He is conducting research in molecular physiology that explores how environmental stressors, especially those associated with global climate change and the multitude of anthropogenic chemical constituents released into the environment, influence developmental processes, mainly in coastal marine organisms. He is a co-author of a recent Science article describing the genome of the purple sea urchin, and an article in PNAS on biological reproduction and vulnerability in a perpetually changing world. His research provides a critical link between environmental chemists and ecologists working in multidisciplinary ways to better inform policy and practice concerning the control of environmental contaminants.
