He is adjunct Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Georgetown University Medical Center. Doctor Scialli received his Dr. of Medicine degree at Albany Medical College, did his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at George Washington University, and did a Fellowship in Reproductive Toxicology at Columbia Hospital for Women Medical Center in Washington, D.C. He was Director of the Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Georgetown University Hospital for 17 years, and is the Founding Editor of the journal Reproductive Toxicology. Dr. Scialli is a Past President of the Teratology Society and has been a consultant to governmental agencies and nongovernmental organizations. He has authored or edited eight books and a number of scientific articles, chapters, and reviews. Dr. Scialli's research interests are chronic pain and reproductive toxicology.

Key project areas for Dr. Scialli include:

  • Center for the Evaluation of Risks to Human Reproduction. Dr. Scialli served as Principal Investigator on this National Toxicology Program contract from 2003-2007, which included the coordination of Expert Panel reports on the effects nominated chemicals on reproduction.
  • Litigation support. Literature search and retrieval, consultation, and expert witness activities, particularly in the area of reproductive effects of chemical exposures, disease states, and nutrition.
  • Regulatory support. Consultation on the design and interpretation of human and experimental animal studies for pharmaceuticals and other chemical products prior to registration and in fulfillment of post-registration commitments. These projects include, for example, the design and implementation of pregnancy registries.
  • Product development. Evaluation of safety and effectiveness data for pharmaceutical products under development.
