Alfred Franzblau Alfred Franzblau, MD
Professor of Environmental Health Sciences
Phone: (734) 936-0758 E-mail: afranz@umich.edu
Faculty Profile

  • Research focuses on work-related musculoskeletal disorders, biological monitoring of chemical exposures, occupational neurological disease, and occupational respiratory disease. Can talk about health effects of oil spills and work-related threats.
  • Recent studies have examined cost-effectiveness of pre-placement nerve testing for carpal tunnel syndrome, hypersensitivity pneumonitis among workers exposed to metal removal fluids, and asthma following household exposure to hydrofluoric acid.
  • Teaches ergonomic and injury prevention seminars; has active practice in clinical occupational medicine.
  • Became associate dean for research at the UM School of Public Health on January 1, 2011. Also has UM appointments as associate professor of emergency medicine and associate research scientist at the Center for Ergonomics.

Dana Dolinoy, Ph.D.
Searle Assistant Professor in Environmental Health Sciences
Phone: (734) 647-3155 E-mail: ddolinoy@umich.edu
Faculty Profile

  • Dana Dolinoy's lab investigates environmental epigenetics and gene-environment interactions. It is increasingly recognized that environmental exposure to chemical, nutritional, and behavioral factors alters gene expression and affects health and disease by not only mutating promoter and coding regions of genes, but also by modifying the epigenome.      MORE
