Prof Flemming R. Cassee
Flemming R. Cassee is currently the deputy head of the centre of Environmental Health at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in Bilthoven, the Netherlands and aims to translate science for policy. He has been active in toxicology for more than 20 years with a prime interest in the adverse health effects of air pollutants and inhaled nanomaterials.
The impact of toxicology is highly variable. In air pollution, standards are mostly based on epidemiology, whereas at the workplace or for specific substances, regulations are directed by toxicological information. I think that it remains a challenge to interact with each other. We also need to communicate our findings to those who have to use it. This requires a different language.
