Dr. Kimberly Ong is an expert in nanoparticle research and toxicology, particularly in protocol development, in vivo aquatic research, and in vitro testing. Kimberley has experience assessing and modifying protocols specific for nanomaterials’ testing to improve reliability for risk and exposure assessment. Her Ph.D. work consisted of testing the biological effects of nanoparticles in embryonic zebrafish and physiological effects on trout, in addition to in vitro testing of mammalian and fish cells. She has been actively involved in a number of scientific groups, including serving as a counselor on the executive board of the Canadian Society of Zoologists and as a member of the NRC-NSERC-BDC Nanotechnology Initiative (NNBNI). She has been actively involved in many international collaborations and cross-disciplinary teams and has presented her work at numerous national and international conferences. Kimberly received a Ph.D. in Physiology, Cell, and Developmental Biology from the University of Alberta, and a B.Sc. in Marine and Freshwater Biology from the University of Guelph. She is currently completing a M.Sc. in Environmental Management and Policy at Lund University.
