      Gina Solomon, M.D., M.P.H. is the Deputy Secretary for Science and Health at the California Environmental Protection Agency. She has been on the faculty in the division of occupational and environmental medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) since 1997, where she still holds the title of clinical professor of health sciences. Dr. Solomon served as the director of the occupational and environmental medicine residency program at UCSF from 2008-2012, the associate director of the UCSF Pediatric Environmental Health Specialty Unit from 2003-2009, and as a Senior Scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) from 1996-2012. She serves on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board and Board of Scientific Counselors, as well as on the National Academy of Sciences Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology. She has authored over 50 peer-reviewed articles, a book, numerous reports, and chapters in several textbooks. Dr. Solomon’s work has encompassed cumulative impacts and environmental justice, new tools in toxicology, the health effects of diesel exhaust, endocrine disrupting chemicals, pesticides, environmental contaminants in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, the health implications of the 2010 Gulf oil spill, refinery safety, and the health effects of climate change. Dr. Solomon received her bachelor's degree from Brown University, a doctorate of medicine from the Yale University School of Medicine, and a master's degree in public health from the Harvard School of Public Health.
