Appendix G Biographical Sketches of Principal Investigators and Members of the Advisory Panel PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATORS DR. MICHAEL KLEINMAN is Associate Director of the Air Pollution Effects Laboratory and Adjunct Professor at the Department in Commu- nity and Environmental Medicine at the School of Medicine, University of California, Irvine. Dr. Kleinman's research program examines the mecha- nisms by which inhaled toxic chemicals, alone and in mixtures, interfere with the cardiopulmonary system and with respiratory system defenses, using both laboratory animals and human subjects. Dr. Kleinman is chair of the State of California Environmental Protection Agency Air Quality Advisory Committee, a former member of the Toxicology Committee of the American Industrial Hygiene Association, and a member of the U.S. EPA's Science Advisory Board Health and Economic Effects Subcommittee. Dr. Kleinman is also a member of the Human Subjects Research Committee and the Biosafety Committee at the University of California-Irvine. DR. MICHAEL WARTELL is Chancellor of the Indiana University- Purdue University Fort Wayne with a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Yale University. He was involved in the Army Science Board in the 1980's where issues of chemical and biological defenses were part of Ad Hoc and Summer Study Groups in which he participated. In 1997, he rejoined the Army Science Board and is an ax-officio member of the Defense Science Board. He also serves as chair of the Defense Intelligence Agency Science and Technology Advisory Board. His positions on these boards are unpaid and afford a broad view of current activities with regard to protection against chemical and biological warfare. Dr. Wartell is interested in 236
