Dhimiter Bello

Associate Professor, Exposure Biology

UMass Lowell, Public Health

Dhimiter Bello, Sc.D., MSc, is an Associate Professor of exposure biology at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA, and a visiting scientist at the Harvard School of Public Health, center for nanotechnology and nanotoxicology. His research focuses broadly on exposure biology, an interdisciplinary approach that investigates quantitative and temporal relationships between environmental exposures and disease in humans. Exposure biology integrates critical information on the biological mechanisms of environmental exposures from diverse disciplines that study the exposure-disease continuum, including exposure sciences, molecular biology, pharmacokinetics, and mechanistic toxicology. He is actively researching two classes of chemical agents - engineered nanomaterials and reacting chemicals, such as isocyanates and epoxies - especially in high-risk industries.

He serves as associate editor for Nanotoxicology and the Annals of Occupational Hygiene. In addition, he serves in several national and international scientific committees. He has published over 50 peer-reviewed articles and three book chapters.
