Dr. David A. Eastmond is a professor and chair of the Department of Cell Biology & Neuroscience at the University of California, Riverside. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley. From 1987 to 1989, he was served as an Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Eastmond joined the faculty at UC Riverside where he is actively involved in research and teaching in the areas of toxicology and risk assessment.
The research in Dr. Eastmond's laboratory focuses on the mechanisms involved in the toxicity and carcinogenesis of environmental chemicals. His research has centered on the metabolism and chromosome-damaging effects of various environmental chemicals including benzene, a widely used industrial chemical and environmental pollutant, and ortho-phenylphenol, a commonly used fungicide and disinfectant.
Dr. Eastmond has served as the president of the Environmental Mutagen Society and as a Jefferson Science Fellow in the US State Department. He has also participated on a variety of advisory panels related to chemical mutagenesis, carcinogenesis and risk assessment including panels for the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US Food and Drug Administration, the International Programme for Chemical Safety, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, Health Canada and the International Working Group for Genotoxicity Testing. He currently serves as the chair of the Board of Scientific Counselors for the National Toxicology Program and as a member of the Carcinogen Identification Committee for the California Environmental Protection Agency.
