Short Biography:

Prof. Van Loveren studied biology at the Utrecht University, where he graduated in 1975. His PhD study was also done at the Utrecht University (Faculty of Medicine), and was finished in 1981 (tumorimmunology). Subsequently he spent two years as a post-doctoral fellow at Yale University, New Haven CT, USA (sensitising activity . 
Since 1984 he was employed by the National Institute of Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), where he is now deputy head of the Laboratory for Toxicology, Pathology and Genetics. 
On May 1 2002 he was appointed as special professor of Immunotoxicology at Maastricht University. His main field of interest is the study of effects of exogenous factors on the immune system, such as environmental chemicals, food components, and ultraviolet radiation. He is registered in the Netherlands as an experimental pathobiologist, toxicologist, and immunologist. 
He (co-)authored over 400 papers and book chapters. Professor van Loveren serves as head of the World Health Organization Collaborative Centre of Immunotoxicology and Allergic Hypersensitivity at RIVM, as Member of the Panel of Nutrition, Dietetic Products and Allergies of the European food Safety Authority, and on the Editorial Boards of Toxicology and of Biomarkers.
