Scientific Advisory Board

The main goal of the Scientific Advisory Board is to analyse the progress of the project and to provide strategic support and independent advice on potential areas of improvement and new avenues to be explored.


Julie Boberg, Technical University of Denmark

Dr. Julie Boberg is a Senior Scientist in the Research Group for Reproductive and Molecular Toxicology at the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark. She is an expert in endocrine disrupting effects of chemicals on the male and female reproductive system. Her research focuses rodent studies on late effects of early exposures with the aims to improve test methods and elucidate mechanisms of action and adverse outcome pathways. Julie Boberg is also an advisor to the Danish authorities regarding mixture risk assessment, endocrine disruption and reproductive toxicity.



Sylvaine Cordier, French National Institute of Health and Medical Research

Dr. Sylvaine Cordier is epidemiologist, Research Director Emeritus at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM U1085) in Rennes, former head of the team “Epidemiological Research on Environment and Reproduction”. She has long been working on the effects of various occupational and environmental pollutants on reproduction and child development, and cancer. The focus of her current research is on developmental toxicity, both prenatal and postnatal, following exposures during pregnancy with particular reference to the effects of exposure to solvents, heavy metals, water disinfection by-products and pesticides.



Juliette Legler, Brunel University London

Prof. Juliette Legler is Professor of Toxicology and Environmental Health at the College of Health and Life Sciences, Brunel University London. She is also Leader of the Environment and Health Theme, a multidisciplinary group of researchers within Brunel University’s Institute for Environment, Health and Societies.  Her research focusses on the molecular mechanisms of toxicity of chemicals and the effects of chemical exposure on humans and wildlife, and she is particularly interested in understanding the long term health impacts of early life exposure to environmental chemicals.
