Associate Professor, Harvard School of Public Health

Dr. Lu is an Associate Professor of Environmental Exposure Biology at the Harvard School of Public Health. His primary research is to use a variety of biomarkers for assessing human exposures to environmental chemicals in order to facilitate the identification of risk factors, as well as the formation of hypotheses for potential health effects. One of his current research projects is to integrate exposure biomarkers, physiologically based pharmacokinetic model and cumulative risk assessment tools for quantifying children’s longitudinal exposure to pesticides via dietary intakes, and its risks by comparing to benchmark doses used by the regulatory agencies.
