Sharp
Director of Research

Renée directs EWG's toxics research program, working to educate consumers and policy makers about threats to public and environment health – and what we can do to avoid them. Renée  joined EWG as a scientist in 2000 after earning her Masters and Bachelors degrees in Biology from Pennsylvania State University and Rice University, and has since authored dozens of reports and led the effort to get the toxic chemical BPA banned from baby bottles in California. A true science geek at heart, she has also served on advisory boards for Kaiser Permanente's Research Program on Genetics Environment and Health as well as the University of California's Toxics Substances Research and Teaching Program. Renée is an avid outdoorswoman and a long-time practitioner of mindfulness and Buddhist meditation.
