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.
