SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCE

He is the Director of the International Center for Environmental Technology (INTERCET) since May 1994. He previously was Director of Human Toxicology and Risk Assessment at the National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council (NAS/NRC) from June 1982 – May 1994. He directed the largest single research division at NAS. He was responsible for the publication nearly 100 research reports, including the most highly recognized report in NAS history (“Pesticides in the Diets of Infants and Children”). Before June 1982 he directed toxicological studies at Borriston Research Laboratories on drugs, pesticides and food additives; the MITRE Corporation on commercial and military chemicals, including chemical warfare agents ; SRI International on industrial chemicals, pesticides and petroleum chemicals; and CIBA-GEIGY Corporation on pesticides, drugs and consumer products.

Throughout his career his focus has been on the toxic action of chemicals and the related structural changes in tissues. He directed studies on the testing of mixtures including commercial products such as drugs, pesticides and petroleum distillates, the assessment of contaminants in drinking and surface waters, the development of biological markers for disease, the use of pharmacokinetics in risk assessment, development of acceptable exposure levels of contaminants in closed spaces such as spacecraft and submarines, the recommendation of acceptable levels of chemical exposure for military personnel, and the development of new methods for risk assessment and regulation.

Chaired or served on several committees dealing with the review and validation of toxicity studies, the development of new test protocols, and emergency response to chemical accidents and terrorist activities. Besides his extensive involvement in national scientific programs, he has had wide international experience in 28 countries. Further, he directed programs in toxicity testing, emergency response planning, standard setting, and regulatory affairs including work with the United Nations, U.S. Agency for International Development, the World Health Organization, and the World Bank.

Finally, he is a Diplomate of the American Board of Toxicology (D.A.B.T.) and holds several other certifications. He is a member of over 25 scientific organizations and has authored or co-authored more then 100 publications and research studies. He has had continuing involvement in Society of Toxicology activities and has been a member of two program committees. He is Past-President of the American College of Toxicology and past chair of the Emergency Response Planning Committee of AIHA.
