veloping statistical approaches for estimating time-varying exposures using biomarkers, two-stage epidemiologic study design, and applications of toxicokinetic models in epidemiologic analyses involving silica, polychlorinated biphenyls, and methylmercury. Dr. Bartell received an M.S. in environmental health from the University of Washington and an M.S. in statistics and a Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of California at Davis.
SCOTT BURCHIEL is professor of pharmacology, toxicology, and immunology in the College of Pharmacy at the University of New Mexico. He is also associate dean for research at the college and is director of the New Mexico National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Center. His research interests are in immunotoxicology, with an emphasis on the effects of drugs and environmental agents on signaling pathways controlling lymphocyte activation and apoptosis, protooncogene activation, and mechanisms of signaling in human mammary epithelial cells. Dr. Burchiel was a member of the National Research Council Subcommittee on Jet Propulsion Fuel 8. He received his Ph.D. in pharmacology from the University of California at San Francisco.
DEBORAH CORY-SLECHTA is director of the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute and chair of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Her research interests are in the relationships between neurotransmitter systems and behavior and how such relationships are altered by exposure to environmental toxicants, particularly the role of environmental neurotoxicants in developmental disabilities and neurodegenerative diseases. Dr. Cory-Slechta has served on numerous national research review and advisory panels, including those for the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She is a former member of the National Research Council Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology’s Committee on Toxicology and the Institute of Medicine Committee on the Gulf War and Health: Literature Review of Pesticides and Solvents. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota.
MARY DAVIS is a professor in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at the West Virginia University Health Sciences Center. Her research interests are in the toxicology of environmental and occupational pollutants, including water-disinfection by-products, halogenated solvents, and arsenic. She is particularly interested in mechanisms of toxicity in the liver, kidneys, and vascular system. Dr. Davis is a former treasurer of the Society of Toxicology and is a former president of the Society’s Allegheny-Erie
