10 outstanding scientists chosen as First Environmental Health Science Fellows

he interaction between genes and environment, especially how toxic substances alter genetic pathways leading to birth defects.

  • Abby D. Benninghoff, Postdoctoral Fellow, Oregon State University, uses her background in marine science and biochemical toxicology to understand how pollutants can interfere with crucial chemical signaling messages in cells to disrupt normal endocrine activity at the gene level in wildlife and humans.

  • Michael T. Borchers, Assistant Professor, University of Cincinnati and a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Outstanding Scientist, is interested in how high and low level exposure to air pollution may trigger immune responses to cause and/or worsen asthma, cystic fibrosis, and other respiratory diseases in people.

  • Arani Chanda, Doctoral Candidate, Carnegie Mellon University, uses innovative green chemistry principles to design novel oxidation catalysts as models for studying how oxidative enzymes behave at the chemical level and has successfully used the designed catalysts to remove smell, color, and organic pollutants from wastewater.

  • Michael D. Laiosa, Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Rochester, combines his training in immunology and biochemistry to investigate how toxic agents, such as dioxin, PAHs, and metals, interfere with development and signaling of the immune system and trigger autoimmune diseases.

  • Maricel Maffini, Research Assistant Professor, Tufts University, applies cell biology research methods to discern the role of environmental chemicals in breast cancer as well as their hormonal activity and reproductive toxicity.

  • Susan Nagel, Assistant Professor, University of Missouri-Columbia, is a reproductive biologist specializing in estrogenic actions, both the role of natural estrogen hormones in development, reproduction, and disease as well as effects of synthetic estrogenic chemicals, such as bisphenol A and diethylstilbestrol,
