Jay Gandolfi was born and raised in the San Francisco bay area. He attended college at the University of California at Davis. He received his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Oregon State University. This was followed by a Post Doctoral Fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in anesthetic fate and toxicity. He joined the University of Arizona in 1978 and is currently Professor of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology, and Toxicology. His interests are in the mechanisms of cellular toxicity and cell death. Current studies concentrate on the role of the immune system in fluorocarbon induced hepatotoxicity, the reversal of toxicity using agents adminstered post-intoxication, and the use of in vitro systems to evaluate cell specific injury. The toxicants of interest include: halogenated hydrocarbons, volatile anesthetics, metals, cysteine conjugates, and classical hepatic/renal toxicants. He has served on the Toxicology Study Section for the National Institutes of Health and has held several offices in the Society of Toxicology including President of the Mechanisms Specialty Section. He is currently Chair of the Graduate Program in Pharmacology and Toxicology and Associate Director of the Superfund Hazardous Waste Program.

He lives with his wife, Judi, on the "Double J Ranch" on the outskirts of Tucson. They enjoy horseback riding in the mountains of Southern Arizona and playing with their numerous pets. They have three grown sons, two who are engineers and one who is in advertising.
