Please join The Center for Urban Responses to Environmental Stressors (CURES) and Integrative Biosciences for another installment in the CURES seminar series: Troy A. Roepke, Ph.D. presenting The Neurophysiological Impact of Organophosphate Flame Retardant Exposure in the Hypothalamus of Adult Mice

The seminar will take place over Zoom on Thursday, December 1, 2022 from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM. The zoom link is provided below.


Dr. Troy A. Roepke is an Associate Professor of Animal Sciences, where they study the interactions of gonadal steroids (estrogens), diets, and endocrine disruptors on the physiological and neurological processes controlled by the hypothalamus with a current focus on perinatal and adult exposures to organophosphate flame retardants. They received a doctorate in Physiology with a designated emphasis in Reproductive Biology from the University of California, Davis in 2005. Dr. Roepke's postdoctoral training was at Oregon Health & Science University studying the neuroendocrinology of estrogens from 2005 to 2011 where they were the recipient of a K99/R00 Pathways to Independence Award from NIDDK to study how endocrine disruptors influence metabolism. They have authored or co-authored fifty-four publications over a wide range of fields including endocrine disruption, estrogen signaling, potassium channel activity in the context of energy homeostasis, the stress response, and feeding and exploratory behaviors. Dr. Roepke's lab is currently funded to study the role of estrogen signaling in the response to chronic stressor in the brain and the influence of maternal obesity and maternal exposure to flame retardants on neonate, juvenile, and adult offspring in mice. Troy is currently the Graduate Program Director for the Endocrinology and Animal Biosciences Program and the Associate Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion for the School of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
