Todd Wyatt, PhD

Dr. Wyatt is a Professor in the Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine Division and the College of Public Health Department of Environmental, Agricultural, and Occupational Health. He is a Research Career Scientist at the VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System. He is the Deputy Director of the Central States Center for Agricultural Safety and Health (CS-CASH). In addition to these roles, he is the Director of the Alcohol Center of Research-Nebraska (ACORN).

Dr. Wyatt’s research examines agricultural organic dust exposure and lung injury in the workplace. His research also focuses on chronic inflammatory lung disease caused by dual-substance use of alcohol and cigarettes. Because chronic exposure to alcohol and/or cigarette smoke significantly impairs normal lung defenses against inhaled environmental toxins and pollutants, he seeks to examine the impact of combination exposures in the workplace when workers both smoke and drink alcohol.

Earning a PhD in pathology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completing postdoctoral training in physiology at Vanderbilt University, Dr. Wyatt has been on faculty at Nebraska for more than 27 years and has published more than 180 articles on lung disease.
