UC Riverside toxicologist honored by international academy
Date:11/28/2011

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Toxicologist David Eastmond at the University of California, Riverside has been elected a fellow of the Collegium Ramazzini, an organization of international scholars who work towards solutions of occupational and environmental health problems around the world.

Founded as an independent, international academy in 1982 and headquartered in Carpi, Italy, the Collegium Ramazzini is comprised of a select group of no more than 180 fellows from about 40 different countries, each fellow being distinguished by his or her contributions to occupation and environmental health.

"I am very pleased and honored to be selected as a fellow of the Collegium Ramazzini, and look forward to working with this esteemed group," said Eastmond, the chair of the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience.

The Collegium Ramazzini assesses present and future risks of injury and disease attributable to the workplace and the environment, and focuses on the identification of preventable risk factors. It transmits its views on these hazards and their prevention to policy-making bodies, authorities, agencies and the public. The Collegium Ramazzini also translates the policy implications of scientific findings to legislators, regulators and other decision makers.

Eastmond is the second faculty member at UC Riverside to be honored by the Collegium Ramazzini. In 2004, Carl Cranor, a professor of philosophy, was named a fellow of the prestigious academy.
