Hopkins Faculty

Francesca K. Litow, MD, MPH
Adjunct Associate Professor, Environmental Health Sciences and Medicine; Co-Director, Occupational & Environmental Medicine Residency
Dr. Litow is board-certified in preventive (occupational) medicine. Her research interests include occupational lung disease and prevention of work-related disability. Clinical interests include medical surveillance for exposed individuals and populations, fitness for duty and return to work evaluations, and review of long term disability cases.

Brian S. Schwartz, MD, MS
Professor, Environmental Health Sciences, Epidemiology and Medicine; Co-Director, Occupational & Environmental Medicine Residency
Dr. Schwartz is board-certified in internal medicine and preventive (occupational) medicine.  His research interests include occupational, environmental and molecular epidemiology; use of biomarkers of exposure, dose, health effects, and susceptibility in epidemiologic studies; causes of adult cognitive and CNS dysfunction, especially chemicals (e.g., lead, mercury, PCBs) and gene-environment interaction; use of neuroimaging in assessment of CNS health in epidemiologic studies. Clinical interests include medical surveillance and causation determination for exposed individuals and populations.
