Sally S. Tinkle, Ph.D.

Assistant to the Deputy Director, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, National Institute of Health

Ph.D., University of Colorado School of Medicine, 1997

BS, St. Louis University, 1972

Dr. Tinkle is an expert in public health and environmental toxicology. She has been cited as 'among the foremost nanotechnology risk and applications researchers in the United States and Europe.' She has done extensive work on the relationship between particulates and lung disease, particularly with chronic beryllium disease, which is caused by exposure to beryllium dust or fumes. Dr. Tinkle is responsible for coordinating nanotechnology health and safety research across the NIH. In this capacity, she developed the NIEHS extramural nanotoxicology portfolio, chairs the NIH Nano Task Force Health Implications working group, and represents the NIEHS on the Nanoscale Science, Engineering and Technology (NSET) subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council. Dr. Tinkle also participates in the organization of many nanotechnology health and safety meetings and is a prominent speaker at conferences and symposia on the health implications of nanomaterials.
