Dr. Judit Marsillach is Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Washington School of Public Health. In May 2021, she was appointed as the Sheldon D. Murphy Endowed Chair in Toxicology and Environmental Health.
Dr. Marsillach’s research focuses on understanding the dynamics of environmental exposures and oxidative stress leading to the development of adverse birth outcomes and chronic human disease. Her work integrates biochemistry, environmental health, neurobiology, proteomics, toxicology and translational medicine, offering promising approaches for understanding the mechanisms of exposure-related diseases and for characterizing biomarkers of exposure and disease, as well as identifying potential therapeutic target proteins.
Dr. Marsillach received her PhD with honors from the University Rovira i Virgili, and her BS in Biochemistry from the University Autonoma of Barcelona, both in Spain. She completed her post-doctoral research in detection of organophosphorus exposures using adductomics at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine.
