Dr. Rachel Novick is a board certified toxicologist with a wide range of experience in consumer product safety, Proposition 65, toxicology research, and exposure assessments. She has provided toxicological assessments of trichloroethylene, formaldehyde, asbestos, benzene, isothiazolinones, ethyl acrylate, and MCHM. She has coordinated efforts to understand the potential exposures and human health impacts of chemicals released in the environment.  Dr. Novick has been involved in occupational and consumer product dose reconstructions and simulation studies for asbestos, benzene, formaldehyde, and consumer product preservatives. Her past research focused on drug metabolism and the role of flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs) in site-specific toxicity in the liver and kidney. She has examined gene and protein expression in response to dioxin exposure and the potential cross-talk between the dioxin and testosterone signal transduction pathways.

Dr. Novick has coordinated projects related to drug metabolism, gene expression, consumer exposures, exposure reconstruction, risk assessment, and toxicological assessment.
