Brian T. Buckley
Executive Director of Laboratories
Dr. Brian Buckley received his BS in chemistry from the University of New Hampshire in 1983; his PhD in analytical chemistry from North Carolina State University in 1989 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Currently he is working as the Executive Director of Laboratories at the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute at Rutgers University. Dr. Buckley is an NIEHS Center Facility Core Director a member of the graduate faculty of the Rutgers Environmental Sciences Department and the Joint Graduate Program in Toxicology as well as the UMDNJ School of Public health. He is serving as an editorial member of several reputed journals like Journal of Environmental and Public Health and the Global Journal of Analytical Chemistry. He has authored more than 50 research articles/book chapters. He is a member of the American Chemical Society and the Society of Applied Spectroscopy and was honored as the Virgil Payne Award for Outstanding Chemical Service Achievement and has served on multiple review panels for NIH and EPA FIFRA. Currently his research focus is on analytical mass spectrometric methods development and modification to measure environmental contaminants and their metabolites. His research has focused on innovative analytical techniques such as Microwave Assisted Solvent Extraction MASE, Solid Phase Micro Extraction SPME and Metal Speciation to measure contaminants in multiple media. His research projects include using synthetic biofluid extractions for estimating bioavailability measurement of unregulated organic contaminants such as pharmaceuticals in drinking water quantifying arsenic species in human urine and extraction of BPA from tissue.
