Rachel Dee, Ph.D., is an Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) Fellow in the Systems Toxicology Branch of the Division of National Toxicology Program (DNTP) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). As a postdoctoral researcher, Dee works on interdisciplinary teams of scientists to assess the potential toxicity of chemical, pharmaceutical, and other environmental agents selected for study at NTP. Her primary responsibilities include the design and coordination of in vivo studies and assistance in the preparation of NTP toxicity or technical reports and peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts. In addition, Dee is a member of the Cardiovascular Health Effects Innovation team, working to bolster NTP’s capabilities to assess cardiotoxicity caused by environmental agents. Dee’s other interests include science communication, outreach, and environmental justice.

Dee received her B.S. in physiology from Michigan State University in 2012 and her Ph.D. in pathology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2019. Her doctoral research focused on mechanisms of blood pressure regulation within the vasculature using genetic, molecular, biochemical, and animal model approaches.
