Katherine S. Squibb is a professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at the University of Maryland in Baltimore and head of the University of Maryland System-Wide Graduate Program in Toxicology. She received her PhD in biochemistry from Rutgers University. In addition to a basic-research interest in subcellular mechanisms of metal-ion toxicity and carcinogenicity, Dr. Squibb’s research involves the study of health effects of ambient-air particles and the renal toxicity of heavy metals with a focus on depleted uranium through her work with the Baltimore VA Depleted Uranium Follow-Up Program. Since 1994, Dr. Squibb has also worked in risk assessment and public health, providing technical support to citizen groups involved in the evaluation of health effects and remediation of hazardous-waste sites in their communities.
