Prof. Dr. Blömeke is a toxicologist with a special interest in the molecular mechanisms of environmental agents on human health. She took up her studies of biology at the University of Cologne and continued her courses in Hamburg. She holds a Master´s degree in biology from the University of Hamburg and a Ph.D. from the Institute of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Hamburg. Her postdoctoral training (1992-1996) was completed at the National Cancer Institute, NIH, Bethesda (USA). She was awarded her academic qualification as a professor (Habilitation and Venia legendi) for Molecular Toxicology from RWTH Aachen University in February 2002. Since August 2003 she is full Professor of Ecotoxicology and Toxicology and appointed Head of the Department of Environmental Toxicology, Faculty VI, Trier University.
Dr. Blömeke has a special interest in extra-hepatic organ toxicity focusing her entire career on human lung and on skin. Her research concentrates on the assessment of the occupational and personal relevance of chemicals based on their molecular effects, chemical structure, metabolism and crossreactivity to related compounds. Acknowledging that disease occurrence is not solely determined by exposure but that individual differences in susceptibility exist, one major goal is introducing the concept of molecular epidemiology and individual susceptibility into the areas of immunotoxicology and xenobiotic metabolism.
