Dr. Michael McClean is the Associate Dean for Research and Faculty Advancement and a Professor of Environmental Health at the Boston University School of Public Health. His research interests focus on the use of biological markers to assess environmental and occupational exposures with respect to exposure-related disease. Trained as an industrial hygienist, he is interested in improving upon traditional exposure assessment methods by developing innovative approaches for assessing exposure via multiple pathways and for analyzing biological data. Previously, Dr. McClean has investigated exposure to polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) in indoor environments, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons exposure among asphalt workers, jet fuel exposure among US military personnel, and gene-environment interactions in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Currently, he is investigating an epidemic of chronic kidney disease among Central American workers, as well as the long-term neurological consequences of exposure to head impacts. He also directs an NIEHS pre-doctoral training program focused on Environmental Epidemiology in Community Settings.
