Kimberly A Sullivan, PhD

Dr. Sullivan is a Research Associate Professor at the Boston University School of Public Health department of Environmental Health and the former Associate Scientific Director for the Congressionally-directed Research Advisory Committee (RAC) on Gulf War Veterans' Illnesses. She is a behavioral neuroscientist and the Principal Investigator (PI) on the large multi-site Gulf War Illness Consortium (GWIC) that includes 9 study sites and is designed to determine the pathobiology of Gulf War Illness (GWI). She is also the PI of the large, multi-site Gulf War Illness Biorepository Network (BBRAIN) designed to share biospecimens and foster collaboration with other GWI researchers. She is also site PI for multiple treatment trials including Co-enzyme Q10 and D-cycloserine to treat cognitive and fatigue problems in veterans with GWI and multiple phase I/II trials of the multi-site GWI Clinical Trials Consortium (GWICTIC). Dr. Sullivan has worked in the field of aging and behavioral neurotoxicology since 1992. She has also coordinated field studies in neurotoxicology (i.e., pesticides, methylmercury), neurobehavioral outcomes and the effects of physical stressors and genetic predisposition to disease on cognitive functioning in Alzheimer's disease, stroke and Parkinson disease.
