Reza Farmahin

I majored in molecular toxicology and received my Ph.D. degree from the University of Ottawa in January 2013. I did my first postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Sean Kennedy at the National Wildlife Research Centre (NWRC). During my tenure as a Ph.D. candidate and postdoctoral fellow at NWRC, my research focused on the establishment of new methods to predict in ovo sensitivity to the toxic effects of DLCs for all species of birds by understanding the structural and functional characteristics of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR). I am currently working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Carole Yauk at Health Canada. My research focuses on developing and validating the application of toxicogenomics endpoints in regulatory toxicity testing and human health risk assessment.
