KIM BOEKELHEIDE

The work in the Boekelheide laboratory examines fundamental molecular mechanisms by which environmental and occupational toxicants induce injury. Current projects include the development of novel in vitro approaches to safety assessment, use of xenotransplantation approaches for human-relevant toxicity testing, and the discovery of sperm molecular biomarkers that reflect testicular injury.

Biography

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 development of novel in vitro approaches to safety assessment, use of xenotransplantation approaches for human-relevant toxicity testing, and the discovery of sperm molecular biomarkers that reflect testicular injury. 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).
