David M. DeMarini was born in Peoria, Illinois, USA. He received the B.S. (1972), M.S. (1974), and Ph.D. (1980) in Biological Sciences (genetics) at Illinois State University, Normal, IL. From 1980-1982, he did postdoctoral research at the Biology Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, TN. He then was a Research Geneticist at the National Toxicology Program, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, Research Triangle Park, NC from 1983-1984.
He began his current position as a Research Genetic Toxicologist at the US Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, NC in 1985. He is also an Adjunct Professor, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC (1991-present). He is a member of the Environmental Mutagen Society (EMS), the Genetics Society of America (GSA), and the Genotoxicity and Environmental Mutagen Society (GEMS), of which he is a past President and Board Member.
His editorial positions include Editor of Reviews in Mutation Research (1998-present), Co-Editor of EMS Newsletter (1988-1991), and Book Review Editor of Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis (1989-1993). His Editorial Board memberships include Mutation Research (1985-1997), Environmental and Molecular Mutagenesis (1984-1989, 1993-present), Mutagenesis (1992-1995, 2005-present), Environmental Health Perspectives (1988-1993), Teratogenesis Carcinogenesis and Mutagenesis (1990-1992), EMS Newsletter (1986-1988), and Pan-African EMS Newsletter (1994-present).
He has organized conferences, symposia, and Alexander Hollaender Genetic Toxicology Training Courses internationally, and has spoken at >60 conferences.

He has served on both (1986 and 2004) Tobacco Smoking and Cancer Monographs of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)/ World Health Organization in Lyon, France, as well as the Drinking Water/Arsenic IARC Monograph (2004). He served on the National Academy of Science's Steering Committee on Proteomics. He has published 134 articles in mutagenesis (116 journal articles and 18 book chapters).
His research interests are molecular mechanisms of mutagenesis, mutation spectra, complex mixtures, and biomarkers of mutation in humans.
