Dr. Javier Del Pino is Associate Professor at the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University Complutense of Madrid, Spain from 2016. He received his PharmD degree at the University Complutense University of Madrid in 2004. He has two Masters in Sciences 2009 and 2010. He worked in Institute of Health Carlos III in the National Center of Environmental Health. From 2010 to 2012 he was an Associated Researcher at University of Massachusetts (UMASS) working in Sandra Petersen´s Lab in a National Institute of Health (NIH) project on developmental effects of TCDD endocrine disruptor on sexual differentiation. He specialized in neurotoxicology and neurodevelopmental toxicology and received his Ph.D. in Toxicology in 2009. He is a member and Manager of the Complutense University’s Research Team EcoBioTox. He is a co-author of several publications on toxicology and environmental journals and participated as a co-author of toxicology Book´s chapters.
Dr. Del Pino research focuses on the evaluation of the effects of environmental pollutants in the development of neurodegenerative diseases. His area of expertise is neurotoxicology, cytotoxicity, and toxicogenomics since his research deepens into the toxic effects of metals and biocides that induce cognitive disorders and other neurodegenerative processes both at cellular and tissue level, studying the molecular mechanisms involved in these effects. He takes a special interest in the genomic toxic effects that metals and biocides produce and the levels from which these effects are produced, all related to the safety evaluation of these compounds.
Dr. Paula Moyano received his JD degree at the Complutense University of Madrid in 2013. She has worked in the University of Massachusetts’ Students Legal Services Office while living in Massachusetts in 2011. She received a Masters in Pedagogical Sciences in 2017. She specialized in neurotoxicology and legal sciences and received his Ph.D. in Toxicology and legal medicine in 2016. She is a member of the Complutense University’s Research Team EcoBioTox. She is a co-author of several publications on toxicology and environmental journals and participated as a co-author of two chapters of the book Thyroid Toxicity.
Dr. Moyano research focuses on the evaluation of the effects of environmental pollutants in the development of neurodegenerative diseases. Her area of expertise is toxicogenomics since her research looks into the toxic effects at genomic levels of persistent environmental chemicals and pollutants, and regulatory toxicology, since her interest lies in promoting changes at the regulatory level of the maximum allowed levels of exposure to the substances that she studies.
