Course Instructor's Biography
Dr. Ph. Garrigues is a CNRS Research Director at the University of Bordeaux. His research interests are the analytical aspects (chromatographies and spectroscopies) related to the detection of organic pollutants and the environmental fate and the toxicological effects of these compounds. His recent research interest deal with REACh euoprean regulation on Chemiclas and how analytical chemistry is developped for its implementation. Dr. Garrigues has authored about 180 publications . He has been member of the Executive Committee of SETAC-Europe (1997-1999) and Chair of the EuCheMS Division « Chemistry and the Environment » (2003-2008). He is presently Deputy-Chair of the French Chemical Society (SCF; 2015- ). He is/has been member of scientific committtees in french institutions ( CNRS, IFREMER, INERIS, Rovaltain Foundation). He has organised various Scientific Conferences dealing with analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry and toxicology, most of them related to scientific societies ( SETAC, ISPAC, EuCheMS).He was Chair of the EUROANALYSIS 2015 meeting that took place in Bordeaux in september 2015 ( 650 participants). He has also various editor’s responsibilities : Editor in Chief of " "Environmental Science and Pollution Research" (SPRINGER, IF : 2.76; 1890 papers published in 2015); Editor for "Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry" ( SPRINGER, IF : 3.12). He is also teaching in various french universities on pollutants in the environment with a specific view on analytical detection and biological effects measurements. He has been also the Chair of "Circle for Analytical Sciences" , a french society offering training in analytical chemistry ( around 100 training courses available).
