About Tara Sabo-Attwood

Dr. Tara Sabo-Attwood is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Environmental and Global Health and a member of the Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology and Emerging Pathogens Institute at the University of Florida. She also serves as the Associate Dean of Faculty Development, Cultural Affairs, and Wellness Programs. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Florida in Biomedical Sciences and Environmental Pharmacology and Toxicology.

Her doctoral training was in the area of aquatic toxicology and she moved into environmental pulmonary pathology as an NIEHS postdoctoral fellow at the University of Vermont. Dr. Sabo-Attwood directs a laboratory group that investigates molecular mechanisms that drive various health impacts associated with environmental exposures to agents which include endocrine disruptors, mineral fibers, and nanomaterials. She is a National Academy of Science Kavli Fellow in Nanotoxicology and serves on a number of scientific boards including the International Academy of Sciences, is a member of the EPA Chartered Science Advisory Board and a Research Associate with the Smithsonian’s Global Health Program.

Her work in nanomaterials and other particulates (secondary organic aerosols) specifically spans toxicological assessments, primarily in a rodent model of influenza virus susceptibility and in aquatic vertebrates focused on nano-enabled applications relevant to improving water quality in aquaculture settings and understanding the impact that carbon-based materials (singly and in hybrid form with metals) have on growth and nutrient uptake in fish. Dr. Sabo-Attwood is also investigating chemical profiles present in water sources in developing nations, such as Haiti. Her most recent work has centered on understanding the connection between nature and wellness, utilizing ‘green space’ to improve health outcomes in an environmentally safe environment (optimal air quality). Her research is currently funded by NIH, NSF, and USDA.
