Xinxin Ding, PhD, department head, Pharmacology and Toxicology, College of Pharmacy—studies enzyme function, regulation and genetics as applied to translational research for drug safety and efficacy and genetic and environmental risks for chemical toxicity. Author of nearly 200 peer-reviewed papers, book chapters and articles, he serves as associate editor for “Drug Metabolism and Disposition” and “Acta Pharmaeutica Sinica B.” Grants from the National Cancer Institute and National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institute of Health fund his work, in part. Former chair of the NIH XNDA study section (2016-2018), he currently chairs (2018-19) Drug Metabolism and Disposition Division of the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics..

Dr. Gandolfi directed toxicology research projects at the University of Arizona since 1978. His research interests are in the toxicity of halogenated hydrocarbons and metals with an emphasis on hepatic and renal systems. He was also active in developing in vitro toxicity models and the disposition of xenobiotics.

Walter Klimecki's research program involves the balance between the particular DNA sequence “versions” of genes that we inherit from our ancestors, and the particular environmental exposures that we experience throughout our lives. The Klimecki lab studies diseases resulting from human exposure to arsenic, contributing to a better understanding of the inherited genetic differences between people that result in altered chemical processing of arsenic after it enters the body.

We are interested in the effects of early life exposures to environmental toxicants on lung growth and development. We determine if the early life exposures leads to adult disease.

I am an Environmental Engineering with training in Toxicology and Chemistry. My primary field of expertise is identification, health assessment, and fate of environmental pollutants. I also work in the field of drug discovery from natural products. My team and I also develop novel analytical techniques for ultra-trace analysis, including on-line sensor systems.
