The complex multidisciplinary problem posed by PCDD can best be understood by the interaction of scientists from different disciplines. This workshop was organised to allow scientific exchange by such experts. The most recent advances in analytical methodology, environmental fate and levels, incineration toxicology (metabolism), animal toxicology and observations in man are covered


For scientists and graduate students concerned with environmental sciences, toxicology and analytical chemists, administrators

Maurizio Pocchiari

Maurizio Pocchiari

Professor Maurizio Pocchiari is a neurologist working at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Rome, Italy, where chairs the Department of Neuroscience. He heads a group of neurologists, geneticists, biochemists, and statisticians working on various aspects of human and experimental prion diseases. These include studies on clinical and molecular epidemiology, diagnosis, pathogenesis, experimental therapy, biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology of the prion protein and the prion protein gene, development of new techniques for the inactivation of prions, and the analysis of risk in transmitting prions from animal-to-human or from human-to-human. Professor Pocchiari runs the Italian Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease surveillance unit since 1993 and is a member of the Coordination Committee of the European Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease Surveillance Network (EuroCJD) of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
