Inok Surh, Ph.D. is a research fellow in the Toxicology Branch of the National Toxicology Program (NTP). She designs toxicological studies, develops study protocols, interprets results and publishes findings for chemicals selected for toxicological evaluation. Currently, she leads several projects that involve herbal medicines, chemical intermediates, and environmental contaminants. These studies include in vivo and in vitro evaluation for carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, developmental toxicity, genetic toxicity and toxicokinetics. She has a particular interest in mechanisms of carcinogenic activity of chemicals.
Surh received a B.S. in pharmacy and a M.S in hygienic chemistry from Duksung Women’s University, Korea. She is a licensed pharmacist in Korea and holds a Ph.D. in pharmacy from the University of Texas at Austin, Texas.
