Dr. Sabo-Attwood is an Associate Professor of Environmental Toxicology in the University of Florida’s College of Public Health and Health Professions and Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology. She has a joint appointment in the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She received her BS from the University of Connecticut in Genetics and Ph.D. from the University of Florida in Biomedical Sciences and Environmental Toxicology. Her doctoral training was in the area of aquatic toxicology and she moved into environmental pulmonary pathology as an NIEHS postdoctoral fellow at the University of Vermont. Dr. Sabo-Attwood directs a laboratory group that investigates molecular mechanisms that drive various health impacts associated with environmental exposures to agents such as mineral fibers, hormonally active agents and nanomaterials. Dr. Sabo-Attwood is currently a member of SOT, FASEB and SETAC and sits on the Editorial Board of Frontiers in Toxicogenomics. She has also chaired international nanotoxicology-related conferences and -workshops and participated in the Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium endorsed by the National Academy of Sciences.
