UC Berkeley Professor, Tyrone B. Hayes, will be contributing to our online FORUM2020 panel, “State of the Earth”. For the last twenty years, the role of endocrine disrupting contaminants, particularly pesticides, has been a major focus of Hayes work. Hayes is interested in the impact of chemical contaminants on environmental health and public health, with a specific interest in the role of pesticides in global amphibian declines and environmental justice concerns associated with targeted exposure of racial and ethnic minorities to endocrine disruptors and the role that exposure plays in health care disparities.
Tyrone B. Hayes, PhD, is Professor of Integrative Biology, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, Endocrinology, Molecular Toxicology, and the Energy and Resources Group. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Harvard University in 1989 and his PhD from the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1993.
