Pharmaceutical Sciences
Frank A. Barile, Ph.D., is Professor of Applied and Clinical Toxicology in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, St. John's University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, New York. He received his Ph.D. in Toxicology (1982) at St. John's University. He completed post-doctoral fellowships at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY, and Columbia University, NY. In 1984, he was appointed Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Sciences at City University of NY. Sixteen years later he rejoined St. John's University in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. He holds memberships in the U.S. Society of Toxicology, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the New York Academy of Sciences. He was elected President of the In Vitro & Alternative Methods Specialty Section of the U.S. Society of Toxicology (2005-2008) and was recently elected VP-elect for the Dermal Toxicology Specialty Section (2013-2014), followed by President. He is the recipient of the U.S. Public Health Service Medallion from the Director of the NIEHS, Dr. Linda Birnbaum (June, 2009). he is currently the Chairman of the PHS Department. Dr. Barile is the recipient of PHS research grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIGMS) for the last 20 years, as well as from the Alternative Research & Development Foundation (Jenkinton, PA) and the International Foundation for Ethical Research (Chicago, IL). Dr. Barile has authored approximately 75 papers and abstracts in peer-reviewed biomedical and toxicology journals, as well as five books and three chapters, including Clinical Toxicology: Principles and Mechanisms, 2nd edition, 2010 (Informa HealthCare, UK) and Principles of Toxicology Testing, 2nd edition, 2013 (CRC Press, FL). Recently published articles describe the development of in vitro ocular toxicity testing methods for detecting irritant and corrosive properties of chemicals (J. Pharmacological Toxicological Methods, 2010) and highlight epigenetic mechanisms using trace metals in embryonic stem cells (Toxicology Letters, 2012). Dr. Barile is currently Editor of Toxicology In Vitro (2012-present). He continues fundamental research on the cytotoxic effects of environmental chemicals on cultured mouse embryonic stem cells.
