Research in the Rand Lab is rooted in environmental and analytical chemistry, and crosses with biochemistry and toxicology. These streams of research enable our group to develop analytical and biochemical tools to assess the impact of pollution in North America, and to provide knowledge that leads to safer consumer products. Our research also addresses emerging issues in environmental health, including the interaction between different kinds of environmental stressors (e.g. nutrition and environmental chemicals) that may alter relationships between exposure and effect. We focus on three streams of research:

  • Routes of human exposure to organic contaminants
  • Contaminant metabolism and biotransformation
  • Contaminant effects on lipid signaling and modulators of contaminant action
