Background

Dr. Mark J. Wilson is a molecular toxicologist and industrial hygienist whose research focuses on the role that modifiable lifestyle factors, like obesity, play in increased sensitivity to the negative effects of occupational and environmental chemical exposures. Dr. Wilson is particularly involved in dietary and environmental exposure assessments using a community-based participatory research framework designed to identify priority exposure scenarios which are then explored using in vitro, in vivo, and ex vivo bioassays.
