Sarah Eliza Lockwood, MD, FACMT
Medical Affairs Lead, Senior Science Fellow
Bayer U.S. Crop Science
Dr. S. Eliza Lockwood is an emergency medicine physician and medical toxicologist with a long-standing interest in global health.
After completing her toxicology fellowship at NYU in 2006, Dr. Lockwood returned to Washington University in St. Louis and started an ACGME accredited fellowship in Medical Toxicology.
Over the following ten years, Dr. Lockwood became increasingly involved with global health and humanitarian relief projects. She organized a relief mission to Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, started the scholar track in Global Health for the Washington University Division of Emergency Medicine, and is one of the Global Health Scholars for the Department of Internal Medicine.
Over the years, Dr. Lockwood began to realize that in order to have a sustainable impact in global health, there needed to be an effort to focus on creative ways of addressing malnutrition and insect-borne illness, two of the most commonly encountered public health problems in developing countries. With that in mind, Dr. Lockwood started working as the Medical Affairs Lead for Bayer, a global seed and chemical company with innovative technology that has great potential to remediate malnutrition.
Dr. Lockwood has lectured nationally and internationally on a diverse range of topics in medical toxicology and global health.
