Flemming R. Cassee, Editor-in-Chief
Flemming R. Cassee works at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, Bilthoven, Netherlands and also has a position as professor in inhalation toxicology at the Institute of Risk Assessment Sciences of the University of Utrecht, Netherlands. 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 use them. This requires a different language."
