Fellow – Postdoctoral IRTA
Erin Quist, D.V.M., M.S., D.A.C.V.P. is a Postdoctoral Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) fellow and board certified pathologist in the Division of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. As a trainee within the NTP Pathology Group, Quist works closely with NTP pathologists, under the guidance of David Malarkey, to evaluate potential toxicological and/or carcinogenic effects observed within select animal models exposed to chemical agents nominated to the NTP toxicity testing program.
As a Ph.D. candidate in comparative biomedical sciences at North Carolina State University, Quist is also working on several projects under principal investigator Suzanne Fenton, head of the Reproductive Endocrinology Group in the NTP Laboratory Branch. Current research projects include: 1) a Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) developmental toxicity study in CD1 mice prenatally exposed to low doses of PFOA and 2) a volatile organic compound (VOC) study in Harlan Sprague-Dawley rats that examines the adverse hematopoietic effects of prenatal and perinatal exposures to drinking water containing a specific VOC mixture.
Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Quist received a B.S. in veterinary science and a B.S.R. in wildlife, watershed and rangeland resources- wildlife sciences from the University of Arizona in 2003. She received her D.V.M. from Colorado State University in 2008 and completed her residency in anatomic pathology at Texas A & M in 2011, along with a non-thesis masters in biomedical sciences- veterinary pathology. Quist successfully achieved board certification from the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) in 2013 and anticipates completion of her Ph.D. in 2015. She joined the NTP in 2011.
