Responsibilities outside unit

A intégré le groupe de travail sur les perturbateurs endocriniens (GT PE III) à l’ANSES (Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l'alimentation, de l'environnement et du travail). Nos missions sont de répondre aux sollicitations d’autres groupes d’experts de l’ANSES sur la question des PE mais également d’évaluer des substances chimiques dans le cadre de la stratégie nationale sur les perturbateurs endocriniens (SNPE).

A participé au groupe d’urgence créé par l’ANSES pour la relecture du guide pour l’identification des perturbateurs endocriniens soumis à consultation publique en décembre 2017/Janvier 2018.

A participé à différents groupes de réflexion au sein de l'OCDE et pour manager de reviews sur des Adevrse Outcome Pathways (AOP 54 et 42) (
