tional meetings. Dr. Dixit received his PhD in toxicology and biochemistry from University of Lucknow with research work at Case Western Reserve University. He is board-certified in toxicology by the American Board of Toxicology since 1992.
DAVID DORMAN is associate dean for research and graduate studies in the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University. The primary objective of his research is to provide a refined understanding of chemically induced neurotoxicity in laboratory animals that will lead to improved assessment of potential neurotoxicity in humans. Dr. Dorman's research interests include evaluation of the effects of neurotoxic chemicals on potentially sensitive subpopulations, examination of chemical-induced effects on behavior and cognitive development, and the application of pharmacokinetic methods to the risk assessment of neurotoxicants. He received his DVM from Colorado State University. He completed a combined PhD and residency program in toxicology at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and is a diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Toxicology and the American Board of Toxicology.
MAUREEN FEUSTON is associate vice president for drug-safety evaluation at sanofi-aventis Inc. Before joining sanofi-aventis, she was responsible for general and reproductive toxicology at Mobil Oil Corporation’s Environmental Health and Safety Laboratory. Dr. Feuston has held a number of elected positions in scientific societies, including president of the Middle Atlantic Reproductive and Teratology Association and council member of the Society of Toxicology’s Reproductive and Developmental Specialty Section, and has served on numerous committees in the Teratology Society. She has also served on the National Research Council Subcommittee on Reproductive and Developmental Toxicants. She received her PhD in developmental biology from the University of Cincinnati.
JACK HARKEMA is University Distinguished Professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University (MSU). He is also the director of the Laboratory for Experimental and Toxicologic Pathology in the National Food Safety and Toxicology Center and the director of the Mobile Air Research Laboratory at MSU. Dr. Harkema's research is designed to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of airway injury caused by the inhalation of airborne pollutants. Dr. Harkema received his DVM from MSU and his PhD in comparative pathology from the University of California, Davis.
HOWARD KIPEN is a professor of environmental and occupational medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. His research focuses on controlled-exposure studies of the effects of environmental agents, such as benzene, asbestos, and particulate air
