Srikanth (Sri) Nadadur, Ph.D., is a Program Director for the Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety (Nano-EHS) and environmental cardiopulmonary health extramural research programs at NIEHS. Nadadur has more than 25 years of research experience in molecular biology and toxicology. While working as a bench scientist he focused on integrating novel state of the art technologies to address fundamental biological questions. These efforts led to cloning and characterizing novel genes in the pre-genome era. Prior to joining NIEHS, Nadadur worked as a Principal Investigator at the National Center for Environmental Assessment (NCEA), National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratories (NHEERL), Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. At NCEA his research efforts were focused on developing ambient air quality criteria documents for the health effects of ozone and lead in support of the national ambient air quality standard setting process. At NHEERL, Nadadur’s research efforts were to integrate genomics and systems biology approaches to understand molecular alterations in the cardiopulmonary effects of air pollutants.
Nadadur is currently overseeing Nano-EHS research efforts by the NIEHS Centers for Nanotechnology Health Implications Research (NCNHIR) consortium involving more than a dozen academic institutions across the U.S. He is also a member of a trans-NIH Nano Task force and the agency representative to the Nanotechnology Environmental and Health Implications (NEHI) subcommittee, National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI). With other federal agency partners, he has contributed to the human health sections of the NNI 2011 strategy document for Nanotechnology-Related Environmental, Health and Safety Research for federal research coordination. Recently, Nadadur took on the responsibilities for scientific and administrative oversight on countermeasures against chemical threats on pulmonary health funded through the trans-NIH CounterAct program.
