Carl-Gustaf Bornehag is Professor and head of Public Health Sciences at department of health at Karlstad University, Sweden. He is adjunct professor at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA. His research focus is on early life exposure for environmental factors such as endocrine disrupting chemicals and the importance for children´s health and development. He is principal investigator of two major epidemiological studies in Sweden, the Dampness in Buildings and Health (DBH) study (following more than 10,000 children from childhood up in adulthood) and the SELMAstudy (following more than 2,000 mother-child pairs from early pregnancy, over birth and up in school age). Bornehag is co-PI for EDC-MixRisk, a project recently awarded by Horizon 2020 with a 6.2 million Euro grant, a study integrating epidemiological studies with experimental cell- and animal models in order to learn about how mixtures of endocrine disrupters impact on children´s health development in three domains (sexual development, neurodevelopment and metabolism), which biological mechanisms that may be in action, and finally by the use of such data improve risk assessment of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Bornehag is further involved in two major Horizon 2020 project (ENDpoiNTs and ATHENA) and he is PI for RACH-Mix, a project focusing on risk assessment of chemicals funded by FORMAS.
