Elizabeth A. Maull, Ph.D.
Toxicologist; Program Administrator
Elizabeth A. Maull, Ph.D., joined the staff of the NTP Interagency Center for the Evaluation of Alternative Toxicological Methods (NICEATM) in 2013. NICEATM conducts data analyses, workshops, independent validation studies, and other activities to assess new, revised, and alternative test methods and strategies and provides support for the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM). Dr. Maull provides oversight of the NICEATM Support Contract and assists Warren Casey, Ph.D., NICEATM Director, in achieving the ICCVAM goals as articulated in the ICCVAM Authorization Act of 2000.
Prior to joining NICEATM, Dr. Maull was a member of the DNTP Biomolecular Screening Branch (BSB) (2011-2013). BSB is invested in high through-put screening as well as in silico approaches to characterize and prioritize chemicals for future targeted testing. From 2002, when she first joined NIEHS, through 2011, Dr. Maull was a member of the Division of Extramural Research and Training, providing oversight of Cooperative Agreements in the Breast Cancer and the Environment Research Program (BCERP), the Countermeasures Against Chemical Threats (CounterACT) Program, the Comparative Mouse Genomic Centers Consortium (CMGCC), and Botanical Research Centers as well as a basic research portfolio focused on kidney and bladder disease.
Dr. Maull brings multidisciplinary experiences in the areas toxicology, risk assessment, molecular biology, virology, nutrition, contract oversight, and interagency interactions to her position with NICEATM. As a toxicologist with the Air Force (1994 – 2007), Dr. Maull was responsible for reviewing the available scientific literature pertaining to a specific of chemical exposures, both occupational and environmental, and summarizing the results for a variety of audiences, including affected community members, internal leadership, and other scientists. Clients ranged from the communities surrounding Air Force installations to the Air Force Surgeon General and the Principal Assistant to the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense (Environmental Security). Dr. Maull represented the Department of Defense in trichloroethylene-related issues from 1996 through 2001 and was invited to participate on the U.S. EPA's External Involvement Group for Trichloroethylene (TCE). She was nominated to serve on the TCE Review Panel of the Science Advisory Board of the EPA. Dr. Maull has received numerous awards based on her work with the Air Force, including the Department of the Air Force Award for Exemplary Civilian Service.
