Lisa Truong is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, and the Deputy Director of the Sinnhuber Aquatic Research Laboratory at Oregon State University, where her research program goal is to utilize the zebrafish model to build computational models to be less reliant on animal testing and conduct toxicity-testing based on toxicity pathways. She received her Ph.D. in Toxicology at Oregon State in 2012 which focused on identifying the structure-activity relation of nanoparticles in the zebrafish model and was a postdoctoral fellow at US EPA-National Center for Computational Toxicology from 2012-2014. Lisa has been conducting research in the nanotoxicology and high throughput screening using zebrafish for the last 10 years. Dr. Truong is author/co-author of 38 publications and has mentored over a dozen students.
