Brandy Beverly, Ph.D., is a health scientist with the Office of Health Assessment and Translation (OHAT) in the National Toxicology Program at NIEHS. Beverly is co-leading evaluations about the effects of traffic-related air pollution on selected health outcomes, including high blood pressure during pregnancy. Her expertise and areas of interest include disease outcomes and underlying molecular mechanisms related to reproduction and development.

Beverly earned her Ph.D. in molecular medicine from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where she investigated changes in hormonal function and blood flow during pregnancy. She received her postdoctoral training in reproductive and developmental toxicology at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory, where she examined the effects of environmental toxicants and pharmaceutical agents on reproductive and developmental outcomes. Before joining OHAT, Beverly worked in the Integrated Risk and Information Systems (IRIS) Program within the National Center of Environmental Assessment at EPA, using her reproductive and developmental toxicology expertise to draft IRIS assessments.
