Brad Reisfeld

Reisfeld’s research interests include biological, biomedical and environmental science related to human health.

Reisfeld’s focus is on the effects of xenobiotics (foreign compounds like drugs and intoxicants) in the body, including issues such as biodistribution, clearance, metabolism, pharmacological effect and toxicity. As a OneHealth Institute Fellow, he is involved in projects that are highly interdisciplinary in nature and cross traditional boundaries between human, animal, and environmental health. He also holds a faculty position with the Colorado School of Public Health.

Reisfeld founded the Systems and Computational Biology Research Group and is a member of the Quantitative and Computational Toxicology Research Group.

Reisfeld earned his degrees in chemical engineering from the University of California-Davis (B.S.), Pennsylvania State University (M.S.), and Northwestern University (Ph.D.)
