Career
Dr Shoji Nakayama holds MD and PhD in public health. His expertise is in exposure science, especially of compounds of emerging concern such as persistent organic compounds, fluorinated chemicals, endocrine disrupters and pharmaceuticals and personal care products. ISES Councillor, Environment International Associate Editor and Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology Associate Editor.

In 2005, Dr Nakayama was invited to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and worked on exposure research on perfluorinated alkyl compounds. In 2009, he moved to EPA’s engineering laboratory to help risk management of the emerging contaminants. Then in 2011, Dr Nakayama joined the National Institute for Environmental Studies in Japan. He is a lead exposure scientist for the Japan Environment and Children’s Study (JECS), which is a longitudinal birth cohort study involving 100,000 mothers and children. Dr Nakayama collaborates with US, EU and Asian researchers to advance and promote children’s environmental health research.
