Dr. Jamesdaniel has a joint appointment with the Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (IEHS). Dr. Jamesdaniel's research focusses on redox sensitive molecular mechanisms underlying the adverse health impacts of noise, a pervasive environmental stressor. Noise induces oxidative stress to affect physiological as well as psychological well-being. Since proteins determine the functional state of a cell, he employs a proteomic approach to elucidate signaling mechanisms/pathways that regulate noise-induced hearing impairment as well as stress response. He uses a similar approach to investigating drug-induced and age-related oxidative stress and functional impairment of the central as well as peripheral auditory system.  He teaches FPH 7420 Principles of Environmental Health.
