Curriculum Vitae

Research Areas

Dr. Felty's ongoing research focuses on molecular risk factors of susceptibility to estrogen-mimicking endocrine disruptors (EEDs) such as polychlorinated biphenyls, bisphenol A, and phthalates that are found ubiquitously throughout our environment. His laboratory uses state-of-the-art approaches to study cell signaling pathways affected by estrogenic stressors and the negative impact of estrogenic stress on stem cells in both aging and obliterative vascular disease. In regards to CREST, our research group is involved with an interdisciplinary approach of gene expression profiling of wildlife exposed to EEDs in order to develop a sophisticated and informative molecular network to predict ecological and human health impacts.

Education

Dr. Quentin Felty received his PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health where he was an NCI Cancer Prevention and Control Training Program Fellow.
