Shaun D Roman

Dr Roman is a member of the Reproductive Science group at the University of Newcastle and a Chief Investigator of the University’s Priority Research Centre for Chemical Biology. He has supervised 11 RHD students and 17 Honours students. Shaun’s team explores the biology of the male germ cell and is currently addressing the effect of acrylamide on these cells. Acrylamide is consumed in food. Dr Roman uses both acute and chronic exposure models. The chronic model allows the examination of the toxicology of acrylamide at doses relevant to human exposure. The team have established the detrimental effects of acrylamide and are now examining the consequences of damaging the male germ line and finding ways to alleviate the effects. Dr Roman has a research pipeline going from enzyme to isolated cell through to whole animal models that allow for chemicals to be tested from affinity through to germ cell toxicology.
