Gary Lee Ginsberg PhD

Lecturer in Epidemiology (Environmental Health)

Research Interests

Risks of environmental chemicals to children and other potentially vulnerable populations including those with pre-existing disease and genetic polymorphism; exposures to chemicals from consumer products; physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modeling.

Current Projects

Identification of hazardous chemicals in consumer products

Evaluation of children’s risks from house dust and indoor air

Construction of population vulnerability distributions to assess inter-individual variability in toxicant response

Comparing the risks and benefits of fish consumption
