Lindsey S. Treviño, PhD

May 26, 2021

Lindsey S. Treviño, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Health Equities and the Department of Population Sciences. Dr. Treviño received her doctorate in Reproductive Physiology from Cornell University. Her dissertation research focused on the role of steroid hormone receptor signaling in the development and/or progression of ovarian cancer in the hen. Dr. Treviño continued her postgraduate training at Baylor College of Medicine, where she investigated the regulation of progesterone receptor activity by cell signaling pathways in breast cancer cells.

She received additional postdoctoral training at the Institute of Biosciences and Technology of Texas A&M University, where she examined the molecular basis of how developmental exposure to the endocrine disruptor bisphenol A (BPA) reprograms the liver epigenome to alter liver metabolism in adulthood in the rat. She continued this line of research as an Instructor at Baylor College of Medicine before joining City of Hope.

Dr. Treviño’s current research program aims to investigate the molecular basis by which exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) promotes the development and progression of hormone-sensitive cancers, particularly in the context of health inequities. Dr. Treviño has been selected as a Future Leaders Advancing Research in Endocrinology (FLARE) Fellow, a Keystone Symposia Fellow, a National Institutes of Health Future Research Leader, and as a recipient of the Young Investigator Award sponsored by the Women in Endocrinology. She previously served on the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion (CODI), on the Governance Task Force, and on the Research Affairs Core Committee (RACC) of the Endocrine Society. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Endocrine Society.
