Moiz  Mumtaz


Adjunct Professor

Adjunct or Visiting, Environmental Health

Dr. Mumtaz’s current research interests include the development of toxicity and risk assessment methods for environmental chemicals/pollutants. Service activities have included numerous expert panels for national and international government and NGOs. He is the principal representative of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR/CDC) on the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Interagency Coordinating committee on the validation of alternative methods (ICCVAM).  He was a member of the Toxic Substances Control Act subcommittee of Society of Toxicology (SOT), SOT Government Liaison Group, and Oregon State University Superfund Center External Advisory Committee.  He is a member of SOT and the past - president of its Mixtures Specialty Section. In 2013, he was elected a Fellow of the Academy of Toxicological Sciences (FATS) and won the SOT Lehman award for major contributions to risk assessment and the regulation of chemical agents. During the past three decades, Dr. Mumtaz has actively published his research findings in several peer-reviewed journals. His research interest cover a wide range of research areas pertinent to medicine and human health including dopamine metabolism/mental health, comparative toxicology, analysis of chemicals, use of computational tools in health risk assessment of chemical mixtures and public health.
