Member, Division of Radiation Health
Lab Phone: 501-603-1376
- Dr. Aykin-Burns received her Ph.D. degree from the University of Missouri-Rolla (currently known as Missouri University of Science and Technology) focusing on antioxidant-based therapies in lead poisoning. She received postdoctoral training at the Free Radical and Radiation Biology Program (FRRBP), Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Iowa.
- Dr. Aykin-Burns is Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS), member of the College of Pharmacy Division of Radiation Health.
- Dr. Aykin-Burns’s research focuses on reactive oxygen species (ROS), mitochondrial function, radiation induced (IR and UV) normal tissue damage and wound healing as well as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) induced oxidative stress. Her laboratory also works on developing radioprotectors and radiomitigators for Acute Radiation Syndromes (ARS).
- Secondary appointment at The University of Iowa, Human Toxicology Program
