Robert Tanguay is an Associate Professor at the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, the Director of the Sinnhuber Aquatic Research Laboratory, and the Director of the NIEHS Toxicology Training Grant. He received his Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from the University of California-Riverside (1995) and postdoctoral training in developmental toxicology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (1996–1999). His group has a long interest in better understanding the mechanism(s) underlying developmental toxicity in response to chemicals such as 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD), ethanol, nicotine, and pesticides. He also has a regenerative medicine group that is developing new methods and approaches to discover the molecular pathways that prevent or promote vertebrate tissue regeneration.
