Antero Vieira Silva
I'm a driven and passionate toxicologist currently developing research at the Institute of Environmental Medicine (IMM).
PhD-student in Risk Assessment, focusing on the Benchmark dose modelling approach.
The focus of my research is to assess and improve the Benchmark dose modelling as a tool for risk and hazard characterization. I am particularly interested in potentially hazardous effects of chemical exposure to human health. I have been researching PFAS and PCB chemical classes but am even interested in the pharmaceutical development process.
Feel free to contact me if you want to get in touch!
