Michael Brauer is a professor and director of the School of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene of the University of British Columbia. His research interests include assessment of exposure to air pollutants, application of advanced exposure techniques to assess the health effects of air pollution, air pollution from mobile sources and vegetation fires, and air quality and health in developing countries. He has been a member of National Research Council and Institute of Medicine (IOM) committees, including the IOM Committee on Gulf War and Health: Literature Review of Selected Environmental Particulates, Pollutants, and Synthetic Chemical Compounds and the National Research Council Committee to Review NARSTO’s Scientific Assessment of Airborne Particulate Matter. Dr. Brauer received his ScD from the Harvard School of Public Health.
Richard Corley is laboratory fellow in the biologic monitoring and biologic modeling group at the Pacific Northwest Laboratory operated by Battelle for the U.S. Department of Energy in Richland, WA. Dr. Corley specializes in the development of physiologically based pharmacokinetic models, real-time breath analysis, dermal and inhalation bioavailability, and the development of three-dimensional computational fluid-dynamic models of the respiratory system. He has published numerous peer-reviewed papers on oral, dermal, and inhalation toxicology; modes of action of a variety of industrial and consumer chemicals; and pharmacokinetic modeling and its applications in human health risk assessments. Dr. Corley served on the National Research Council Committee to Assess the Health Implications of Perchlorate Ingestion. He received a PhD in environmental toxicology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
