Alicia Timme-Laragy Named Outstanding Young Investigator by the Society of Toxicology

Alicia Timme-Laragy, an associate professor of environmental life sciences at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, recently received the 2021 Outstanding Young Investigator Award from the Society of Toxicology. The award is given annually to individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of toxicology in the early stage of their careers.

A developmental toxicologist with expertise in how early life exposures to pollutants affect health, Dr. Timme-Laragy has served on the faculty at the School of Public Health and Health Sciences at the university since 2013. Her research aims to elucidate cellular and molecular mechanisms of toxicant-induced oxidative stress in embryonic development and identify later-life consequences of embryonic exposure to oxidative stress.

“I am so honored to receive this award,” said Dr. Timme-Laragy. “I work with a great team of researchers and students here at UMass, and this award reflects their hard work as well. I’m excited to continue to build my research program and advance the fields of developmental toxicology and redox biology.”

Dr. Timme-Laragy is a graduate of Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She earned a Ph.D. at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina
