EDWIN PRICEPost-Doctoral Researcher
University of North Texas
Edwin Price is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of North Texas. He joined the labs of Ed Mager and Aaron Roberts in the RECOVER consortium to work on various projects that examine the effects of oil on tissue and whole-animal function in fish.
Dr. Price earned a BA in Biology from Kalamazoo College, and a PhD in Biology from the University of Western Ontario, where he studied the effects of dietary lipid composition on migratory flight performance in birds. Since then, his research has spanned several areas in physiological ecology and comparative physiology. These include nutrient absorption in the intestines of bats, the transition from ectothermy to endothermy in hatchling birds, determining physiological condition using blood metabolites in reptiles, testing the membrane pacemaker hypothesis of metabolism, and understanding the physiological mechanisms that drive reproductive ecology in sea turtles.
