About the Serial Volume Editor

T. M. Penning

Dr. Trevor Penning, the Thelma Brown and Henry Charles Molinoff Professor of Pharmacology, is a professor of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics at the University of Pennsylvania and has been the Director of the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) since its founding in 2006. He formulated the strategic vision of the CEET from its inception and built the environmental health science identity of the CEET at the University, regional, and national level. As Director of the CEET, Dr. Penning has focused the center’s research around the connections between human disease and environmental exposures and emphasized the importance of using this research to mitigate health impacts on vulnerable communities both locally and globally. Throughout his time as Director, Dr. Penning has focused his research on the connections between human health and anthropogenic pollution. Air pollution is responsible for more than 200,000 deaths globally each year and has been identified as a known human carcinogen by the World Health Organization.
