Joint Environmental Health Programs and various National Research Council committees concerned with environmental health issues, and has held consultantships to federal agencies. His current service includes the Environmental Protection Agency Science Advisory Board, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Board of Scientific Counselors, and the National Research Council Committee on Neurotoxicology and Risk Assessment. His research activities embrace various aspects of behavioral toxicology and pharmacology, including the actions of such heavy metals as lead, mercury, and manganese' of organic solvents, of central nervous system drugs, and of other substances whose actions are reflected in behavior. RAYMOND S. H. YANG is a senior staff member of the Carcinogenesis and Toxicology Evaluation Branch of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Toxicology Program and an adjunct professor of toxicology at North Carolina State University. His research interests cover many subdisciplines in toxicology, including carcinogenesis, reproductive toxicology, physiologically based pharmacokinetics, toxicology of chemical mixtures, and toxic interactions. Among his current responsibilities is service as principal investigator in a program on the toxicology of chemical mixtures derived from groundwater contaminants, which is related to the Superfund hazardous-waste site cleanup efforts.
