Ecosystems Research

W. Matthew Henderson

My current research interests include the mammalian metabolism, distribution and toxicology of perfluorinated chemicals, various endocrine-active chemicals (i.e. EE2), as well as fungicides and pesticides (conazoles).  I conduct research in both in vitro and in vivo systems investigating the sex- and species-mediated routes of metabolism of these chemicals.  I also utilize GC/MS and LC/MSn-based metabolomic tools to elucidate how these chemicals disrupt the normal biological processes occurring in vivo, with emphasis on metabolic-biomarkers of developmental toxicity as well as alterations in steroidogeneic pathways.
