Research Interest

Dr. Emond is a researcher in the field of toxicology and a Clinical Adjunct Professor at the Environmental and Occupational Health Department of the Université de Montréal. His main research program is on Toxicology more particularly in pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic of toxic molecules with the objective to understand their mode of action for human health risk assessment. His research interests also focus on nanotoxicology for the understanding of nanoparticles interactions with biological systems, and the mathematical physiological modeling of nanoparticles behaviours (e.g. localization) in complex biological systems (e.g. respiratory tract). He collaborates at the international level with different universities and private institutes in USA and Europe, and acts as an international peer review in different expert panels related to environmental issues. He is a member of the Quebecer Community in Nanoxicology, an initiative of The Research Network in Health and Security in the Workplace of Quebec supported by the FRSQ (Fonds de Recherche en Santé du Québec).
