Research Interests / Professional Overview:

Mary Evelyn Northridge, PhD, MPH is an Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Health Promotion at the New York University College of Dentistry. She also holds a part-time appointment as a Professor of Clinical Sociomedical Sciences (in Dental Medicine) at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and the College of Dental Medicine. Professor Northridge was re-appointed as editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Public Health for her seventh term in July 2013. She has enduring interests in social and environmental determinants of health, including oral health, and a current focus in the utility of systems science to integrate and sustain holistic health and health care. She is currently funded by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research and the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research of the US National Institutes of Health on a collaborative R01 among researchers and practitioners at the University at Buffalo, Columbia University, and New York University (Lead PI: Northridge), as well as several local participatory projects related to systems science, dissemination and implementation science, and oral public health. Professor Northridge earned a BA in chemistry with a specialty in biochemistry at the University of Virginia, an MPH in environmental health at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey/Rutgers University, and a PhD in epidemiology at Columbia University. Upon the completion of a post-doctoral fellowship in cancer epidemiology at the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute in Piscataway, NJ, Professor Northridge continued her academic career at the Harlem Health Promotion Center of Columbia University, where her research and practice projects addressed the elimination of social disparities in health through community-based participatory research for more than two decades. Professor Northridge is the author of over 160 scientific papers and the co-editor of two volumes.
