The work in the Boekelheide laboratory concerns the mechanisms of testicular injury induced by toxic industrial and environmental compounds, mixtures of contaminants, and the reproductive/developmental consequences of exposure to endocrine disruptors.
Kim Boekelheide is Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Brown University School of Medicine. He received his B.A. from Harvard University, and M.D. and Ph.D. from Duke University. His research examines fundamental molecular mechanisms by which environmental and occupational toxicants induce testicular injury. Current projects include the study of co-exposure synergy using model testicular toxicants and the effects of in utero endocrine disruptor exposure on steroidogenesis and a predisposition to cancer. He is Director of the Brown University Superfund Research Program and Children's Environmental Health Center. His research has been continuously funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences since 1985 and he has received several awards including a Burroughs Wellcome Toxicology Scholar Award (1994-1999).
