Biography

Dr. Sharlee More is a Supervising Health Scientist with Cardno ChemRisk with over 3 years of consulting experience. She has professional experience in the areas of toxicology and human health risk and hazard assessment. She completed her PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh. Her training and research focused on determining the toxicity associated with metal/silica complex engineered nanomaterials using both in vivo and in vitro models. Furthermore, Dr. More synthesized and characterized the materials extensively to understand the impact structure had on toxicity which led to the derivation of structure-toxicity correlations that can be used to design safer nanomaterials. As a consultant, Dr. More has participated and led multiple efforts that include understanding the toxicology, potential exposure, hazard and risk associated with occupational exposures, medical devices, consumer products, and electronic cigarette devices. In addition, Dr. More has led several efforts related to understanding potential exposure, toxicology and risk associated with various nanomaterials including nickel nanoparticles, and wear debris nanoparticles from medical devices.
