About Dr. Rand
Join the Lab
MSc, Chemical and Environmental Toxicology
2018-2021. Comparing PFAS toxicokinetics in human tissues and microbial environments
BSc (Nutritional Sciences), Justus Liebig University Giessen
2019. Maxi received an undergraduate summer exchange opportunity through the MITACS internship program. She researched the effect of pain-relieving drugs on altering omega-6 fatty acid metabolism.
BSc (Health Science), Carleton University
2018-2020. Aleen participated in summer research and was a recipient of I-CUREUS awards. She helped with the maintenance of C. elegans, our model for studying toxicant mechanisms of action.
BScH (Chemistry), Carleton University
2018-2019. Danielle did her Honours project with the group developing an enzyme activity assay to assess pollutant metabolism.
2019. Sean synthesized 8 metabolites of fluorinated pollutants to serve as analytical standards and toxicant substrates in future projects.
2019-2020. Kali used computer modeling and LC-MS/MS to examine the metabolism of omega-6 fatty acids and how this can be modulated in the presence of aspirin.
