Dr Laura-Jayne Bradford

Laura-Jayne Bradford is a Daphne Jackson Fellow at the University of Birmingham in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences.

Laura-Jayne did a BSc in Forensic Science at the University of Wolverhampton, after which she went to the University of Birmingham where she completed a Masters in Toxicology followed by her PhD in which she studied the chemistry and transport of silver nanoparticles in environmentally relevant conditions.

Following her PhD, Laura-Jayne worked on environmental toxicology research with the Nanoscience group at the University of Birmingham. These included the NERC highlights topics programmes and a number of European collaborative projects including NanoSolveIT and RISKgone. Her research utilizes toxicology as an interdisciplinary science, by understanding what emerging pollutants are, their drawbacks for regulation/risk assessment, and how we safeguard human and environmental health.

Laura-Jayne also taught and supervised students on the Environmental Health Sciences Masters programmes. She was very productive in terms of research outputs during this time, producing fifteen publications, eight as first author.

Now returning to research after a four year career break, Laura-Jayne’s project is entitled: Establishment of  Nanomaterial-induced adverse outcome pathways, over multiple generations of Daphnia for Environmental Nanomaterial Risk Assessment.

Her sponsor is the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).
