Dr. Barney Sparrow
Dr. Barney Sparrow is the Principal Investigator for Battelle’s work on the National Institute of Environmental Health Science’s National Toxicology Program (NTP). In his this role, he is responsible for oversight and direction of in vivo toxicology research that will provide critical insights into the toxicological profiles and potential human health impacts of dozens of chemicals that are already in widespread use. As the Principal Investigator for the NTP, Barney serves as the main point of contact for the National Institute of Environmental Health and other partner agencies and contractors, and oversees all Battelle work conducted as part of the Support of the Research Effort to Evaluate the Toxic and Carcinogenic Potential of Test Agents contract. Barney also currently serves as the Principal Investigator for the Therapeutics for Rare and Neglected Diseases (TRND) and Bridging Interventional Development Gaps (BrIDGs) programs, which focus on “orphan drugs” to treat serious but rare diseases that do not have the market potential to attract private investment.
