Daniel Brown, PhD, joined the Duke Toxicology Program in October 2022. Dr. Brown had previously worked as an Assistant Professor of Developmental Biology in Western Carolina University’s Biology Department. In that role, he explored heart development following exposure to binary and complex toxicants using the zebrafish model. Dr. Brown’s past research has focused on assessing underlying mechanisms leading to abnormalities following early-stage toxicant exposures, better characterizing cardiac development, and determining changes in behavior and performance following embryonic toxicant exposure.

Dr. Brown received his BS in Biology with a minor in Chemistry from Elon University. He then completed his PhD in Environment with a certificate in Toxicology from Duke University’s Integrated Toxicology and Environmental Health Program. Dr. Brown is also a graduate of the SPIRE Postdoctoral Fellowship Program at UNC-Chapel Hill.
