Welcome to the Alderman Lab! We are integrative comparative physiologists who study the effects of environmental stressors on neural, endocrine, and cardiac systems. From brains to biomarkers, our goal is to understand the mechanisms and consequences of stress on animal physiology. Current projects include:

  • Mechanistic and functional connections between stress and adult neurogenesis in fish
  • Effects of aquatic pollutants on fish physiology, morphology, and performance
  • Quantitative proteomics as a tool for biomarker discovery and novel insights into animal physiology
