Research Interests:

A. Jay Gandolfi, PhD, is professor emeritus in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology and the former associate dean for research and graduate studies (1999-2012). Dr. Gandolfi taught drug disposition in both PharmD and the graduate student curricula. He directed the Graduate Council and was director of the NIEHS Superfund Program from 1999-2012.

Dr. Gandolfi's research interests were in the disposition and toxicology of drugs (e.g., anesthetics) and environmental chemicals (e.g., arsenicals) and the development of in vivo and in vitro models for studying mechanisms of toxicity. 

Dr. Gandolfi joined the University of Arizona in 1978 and had appointments in the College of Medicine (Anesthesiology, Pharmacology) and the College of Pharmacy (Pharmacology and Toxicology). He received the College of Pharmacy's Findlay E. Russell MD, PhD, Distinguished Citizen Award in 2007 for services to the college and university.

Research Interests:

My research interests are in the molecular and cellular mechanisms of toxicity. Current studies concentrate on the use of in vitro systems to evaluate cell specific injury. Specific studies examine the effects of low level arsenic exposure on the toxicity and transformation of human bladder cells.  A three month exposure of the bladder cells to low levels of arsenicals transforms the cells to a malignant phenotype.  Our studies are examining the functional, genetic, cell signaling alterations that are occurring prior to the transformation.
