Professor and Chair of Environmental Medicine at the University of Southern Denmark and Adjunct Professor of Environmental Health in the Department of Environmental Health at Harvard School of Public Health, Philippe Grandjean has devoted his career to studying how environmental chemicals affect children and their brain development.
