Dr. Daniel Schlenk
Dr. Daniel Schlenk is a Professor of Aquatic Ecotoxicology and Environmental Toxicology at the University of California Riverside. Dr. Schlenk received his PhD in Toxicology from Oregon State University in 1989. He was supported by a National Institute of Environmental Health Science postdoctoral fellowship at Duke University from 1989-1991. A Fellow of AAAs, he has served on two Scientific Advisory Panels supported by California State Water Board in the USA focused on the monitoring of recycled and surface waters for Emerging Contaminants. Since 2016, he has been a permanent member of the USEPA Chemical Safety Advisory Committee, and from 2007-2014, he has been a permanent member of the USEPA FIFRA Science Advisory Panel, which he Chaired from 2012-2014. He is currently an Associate Editor for ES&T and ES&T Letters. He was co-Editor-in-Chief of Aquatic Toxicology from 2005-2011 and currently serves on its editorial board as well as the editorial boards of Toxicological Sciences, and Marine Environmental Research. He has published more than 250 peer reviewed journal articles and book chapters on the identification of Molecular Initiating and Key Events within Adverse Outcome Pathways for emerging and legacy contaminants in wildlife and humans. He has particular expertise in the linkage of molecular and bioanalytical responses associated with neuroendocrine development and whole animal effects on reproduction, growth and survival. He has been a recipient of the Ray Lankester Investigatorship of the Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom; a visiting School of the Instituto Del Mare, Venice Italy; a visiting School in Department of Biochemistry, Chinese University of Hong Kong; a Visiting Scientist at the CSIRO Lucas Heights Laboratory, in Sydney Australia, a Distinguished Fellow of the State Key Laboratory for Marine Environmental Science of Xiamen University, China, and Outstanding Foreign Scientist at Sungkyunkwan University in Korea. His research is supported by funding from the USGS, NIEHS (Superfund Research Program), and USDA.
