POST-DOCTORAL AND STUDENT MEMBERS
|NAME||RESEARCH PROJECT||YEAR||UNIVERSITY||UNIVERSITY LEVEL||RESEARCH DIRECTOR||THEMES|
|Alec McDermott||BFR and breast cancer.|
I am studying endocrine disruptors because: "It is important to know the effects of endocrine disruptors, even more so, because of the new abundance of synthetic compounds. These have adverse effects on human health (modification of reproductive success, growth and increased risk of cancer). Who knows, maybe they are responsible for several other pathologies where the causes are more or less known? It is therefore important to understand their mechanisms of action as well as the potential for transgenerational transmission in order to prevent / stop future pathologies.’’
|Ana Gisell Pazmino-Sosa||Role of microalgae in enhancing the photobiological degradation of EDCs.|
I am studying endocrine disruptors because: ''Endocrine disruptors are chemical compounds, both natural and human-made, that can interfere with the endocrine system's normal function. They are present in many products of daily use. At first, they were designed to improve product quality or make a process more efficient; however, scientists have found that even low doses of these compounds could be harmful to animal and human health. It is crucial to understand its nature, its effects, and find efficient ways to remove them from the environment and protect public health''.

|Laura Pelland St-Pierre||The role of endocrine disrupting chemicals in cancer etiology.|
I am studying endocrine disruptors because: “In Canada, cancer is the leading cause of death. Lung, breast, prostate and colorectal cancers are the most common cancers. The incidence and mortality of cancers differ by sex (lung, colorectal). Although lifestyle differences may partly explain some gender disparities, the determinants of these disparities are still not understood. A few studies have therefore been conducted to elucidate the effect of sex hormones in the development of cancer. Endocrine disruptors can act as modifiers of the functions of the endocrine system, which can cause several adverse health effects. One of the suspected effects is the development of cancer. Exposure to these chemicals is ubiquitous in the environment, but in people exposed at work, exposure occurs at significantly higher concentrations. This is why I am studying the link between occupational exposure to endocrine disruptors and the development of these cancers. This could help prevent their occurrence for certain workers with high occupational exposure ”.

This pathway brought me to the endocrine disruptors and its effects in living beings''.

I am studying endocrine disruptors because: ''Endocrine disruptors represent a class of pollutants that may have sub-lethal toxic properties in exposed wildlife. I’m particularly interested in studying the effects of such chemicals on amphibians, a taxon that is facing severe population declines. Evidence suggests that EDCs are playing a role in frog biodiversity loss, but there is still much to learn. For example, newly introduced products may not be acutely toxic, but induce adverse effects through interfering with normal hormone signaling. Perhaps gaining a better understanding of these effects will provide critical insights, allowing amphibian conservation efforts to be more successful''.

I am studying endocrine disruptors because: ''The ‘recent-discovered’ endocrine disruptors present in the environment highlighted our need to study their adverse effects both over the wildlife and in humans, which can be related to several disorders like obesity, infertility or several metabolic syndromes. The ignorance cannot be an excuse to do not act and to replace certain chemicals with endocrine disrupting properties by other more innocuous substitutes''.

Concern on this issue is relatively recent, and although knowledge on this field had a considerable advance in the last decades, many questions remain open. Understanding how the endocrine system works and how chemicals can disrupt this system is fundamental to support responsible decisions concerning environmental protection and, ultimately, our health''.
