exposure science at the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute of UMDNJ-RWJMS and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. Dr. Lioy is a member of the US Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board and has served on the Board on Toxicology and Environmental Studies of the National Research Council. He is a fellow of the Collegium Ramazzini and was a member of the International Joint Commission Air Quality Board for the United States and Canada. He is a former president of the International Society of Exposure Science and was the 1998 recipient of the Wesolowski Award for Human Exposure Research. He was also the 2003 recipient of the Air and Waste Management Association Frank Chambers Award for Lifetime Research and Applications in Air Pollution and, among his other awards, was the 2008 recipient of the Rutgers Graduate School’s Distinguished Alumnus Award in Mathematics, Engineering and Physical Sciences. Dr. Lioy’s research interests include human exposure to environmental and occupational pollution, multimedia exposure issues for metals and pesticides, research on air-pollution exposure and dose relationships, and participation in the study of exposure and effects of pollution on human health in urban and nonurban areas and controlled environments. He is an author of 250 peer-reviewed papers and is an Information Sciences Institute Most Highly Cited Scientist in environment and ecology. Dr. Lioy has been a member of numerous editorial boards, including his current positions as associate editor of Environmental Health Perspectives and the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology. He has served as a member of numerous National Research Council committees and chaired the 1987–1991 Committee on Air Pollution Exposure Assessment. Dr. Lioy received a PhD in environmental sciences from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

Richard T. Di Giulio serves as director of Duke University’s Integrated Toxicology Program and the Superfund Basic Research Center. His research concerns basic studies of mechanisms of contaminant metabolism, adaptation, and toxicity and the development of mechanistically based indexes of exposure and toxicity that can be used in biomonitoring. The long-term goals of his research are to bridge the gap between mechanistic toxicologic research and the development of useful tools for environmental assessment and to elucidate linkages between human and ecosystem health. The bulk of Dr. Di Giulio’s work uses a comparative approach with aquatic animals, particularly fishes, as models. Of particular concern are mechanisms of oxidative metabolism of aromatic hydrocarbons, mechanisms of free-radical production and antioxidant defense, mechanisms of chemical carcinogenesis, and developmental perturbations and adaptations to contaminated environments by fishes. He received a PhD from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.

J. Paul Gilman is senior vice president and chief sustainability officer for Covanta Energy. Previously, he served as director of the Oak Ridge Center for Advanced Studies and as assistant administrator for research and development in
