Jean-Baptiste Fini, PhD, is a full professor at the French National Muséum of Natural history (MNHN) in the department “Adaptation of living organisms ” in a common unit with the CNRS (French National Research Center) named “Physiological and Molecular Adaptation”.
In this joint unit CNRS/MNHN (Paris, France) Pr. Fini leads the research team RODEO (responses to Environmental challenges) particularly on thyroid hormone signalling pathway disruptors and studies short- and long-term consequences of early exposure to different classes of chemical substances, either as single molecules or as mixtures. During the previous ten years, he has developed an assay to identify thyroid disruptors and their effects within Pr. Demeneix's team, who was awarded with the medal of innovation by the CNRS in 2014. Dr. Fini currently participates in several expert groups at the OECD (AOP, Thyroid) and is also part of the working group on endocrine disruptors at the French National Food Safety and Environment Agency (ANSES) and part of a working group on EDCs at the EFSA (European Food Safety Agency).
