Integrative Biology, UC Berkeley
Tyrone Hayes, PhD professor of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley, and ground-breaking researcher on endocrine disruptors. Dr. Hayes, a Harvard educated biologist and professor of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, whose research finds that the herbicide atrazine feminizes male frogs, is one of the leading scientists critical of the pesticide industry and regulatory process. This critical research was among the first to issues a clarion call for action to protect amphibian species, which are in steep decline and disappearing. His work has expanded into identifying the threat of endocrine disruptors on biological systems worldwide.
