Dr. Dana Boyd Barr is a Professor of Exposure Science and Environmental Health at Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health, Department of Environmental Health. Although she has been in academia for just a short while, she has worked to establish a state-of-the-art laboratory at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health for assessing human exposure to a wide range of chemicals. In addition, she has successfully established a team of cohort studies evaluating maternal-child health, paternal reproductive health, and farmworker safety in Thailand including the newly funded SAWASDEE (Study of Asian Women and Offspring's Development and Environmental Exposures) Study. Prior to joining Emory, Dr. Barr was employed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 23 years. During her tenure at CDC, she devoted much of her time to the development of methods for assessing human exposure to a variety of environmental toxicants including current-use pesticides, phthalates, organochlorine chemicals (pesticides and PCBs), phytoestrogens, diethylene glycol, methyl eugenol, vinyl chloride and others. Dr. Barr has authored or coauthored over 300 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and many published abstracts. Some of these papers have been landmark papers showing human exposure to pesticides in the general population and determining appropriate matrices for biomonitoring at each life stage. She is the past President of the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES; formerly ISEA) and previously served as its treasurer; she is past Editor-in-Chief and current Editor Emeritus of ISES’s official journal, Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology. She is also an associate editor of Environmental Health Perspectives and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Chromatography & Separation Techniques, Journal of Health Research, and Advances in Medicine. She is also an active member of the International Society of Environmental Epidemiology, Society of Toxicology, and the Association of Official Analytical Chemists. She has served many important roles in the field of exposure assessment including serving on the NAME Study Section and EPA review boards such as the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel. As a result of her efforts, Dr. Barr has received many awards including ISES’s Daisey Award for Outstanding Investigator, two HHS Secretary’s awards for exposure-health investigations involving diethylene glycol and methyl parathion poisoning, 2004 Federal Scientific Employee of the Year, CDC’s Mackel Award for outstanding collaboration among epidemiology and laboratory, and EPA’s Silver Medal for outstanding contributions to the development of protocols for the National Children’s Study. She is a 2014, 2015, and 2016 recipient of Thomson Reuters “Most Highly Cited Researcher” award representing the top 1% of researchers in ecology and the environment over the previous 10 years. Dr. Barr received her BS in Biology from Brenau University in 1987 and her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Georgia State University in 1994.
