The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) has lost one its founders and stalwart advocates. Dr. Paul Lioy unexpectedly passed away Wednesday night. We owe much to Paul for his vision and tenacity in building and sustaining ISES over the course of more than two decades and for being a leader and pioneer in exposure science. He inspired the formation of the Society, served as its President from 1993-94, was the recipient of the Wesolowski Award in 1998, and served as Distinguished Lecturer from 2008 – 2010. He advised, mentored, and influenced many of us in the Society and in the field of exposure science. His voice and presence will be sorely missed, but will live on in the many of us whom he developed and shaped. His spirit permeates the Society and is most certainly a part of his legacy that we will carry on.
On behalf of the Board,
Exposure science: the bridge between environment
The International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) is committed to creating a safer and healthier world by advancing exposure science and promoting the use of exposure science in the fields of public, occupational, and environmental health. The ISES understands that there is a need for relevant exposure information and the tools to develop exposure information in a timely fashion. Exposure scientists -- a community known for its interdisciplinary, creative, and pragmatic approach to problem solving -- are leaders in improving and expanding exposure information.
ISES was formerly the International Society of Exposure Analysis (ISEA). Our name change reflects the natural maturation of this young society and its growing prominence as a critical field of science for the management of global public, occupational, and environmental health issues. The ISES Board is continually looking for the society might provide more member services and greater impact in the field of exposure science and its relevance to aligned scientific fields.
Exposure Digests --a joint project of ISES and JESEE was designed to promote the incorporation of exposure science into environmental health decision making and include many of the cogent issues challenging the society today.
