Justin G. Teeguarden is a senior scientist in biologic monitoring and modeling at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He previously served as chair and president-elect for the Dose—Response Specialty Section of the Society for Risk Analysis. He also served as a member of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grant-review panel on computational toxicology. In 2003, Dr. Teeguarden received an award from the Risk Assessment Specialty Section of the Society of Toxicology for the Best Published Manuscript Advancing the Science of Risk Assessment. His current research involves developing an integrated systems-biology—directed research program on effects of particulate matter on respiratory health. He continues to consult both for EPA and for private companies on developing and applying physiologically based pharmacokinetic models and other dosimetry approaches supporting risk assessment. He received his PhD in toxicology from the University of Wisconsin—Madison.

Dr. Thomas was codirector of the Southern California Environmental Health Sciences Center (funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences) and is director of its Study Design and Statistical Methods of Research Core. His research interests include the development of statistical methods in epidemiology, with emphasis on cancer epidemiology, occupational and environmental health, and genetic epidemiology. He is also a senior investigator in the California Children’s Health Study. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles in those fields and is the author of Statistical Methods in Environmental Epidemiology (Oxford University Press, 2009). Dr. Thomas is a Fellow of the American College of Epidemiology and a past president of the International Genetic Epidemiology Society. He has served as a member of National Research Council committees to review radioepidemiology tables, the biologic effects on populations of exposures to low levels of ionizing radiation (BEIR V), and improving the presumptive disability decision-making process for veterans.
