Michael McClean, ScD
Associate Professor & Director of Doctoral Training
Environmental Health

Mike McClean is the Director of Doctoral Training in the BUSPH Department of Environmental Health and directs the Exposure Biology Research Laboratory. 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. Currently, Dr. McClean is investigating 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. He is also involved in an effort to investigate elevated rates of chronic kidney disease among sugarcane workers in Nicaragua. BUSPH Profile
