Anne H. Chappelle

International Isocyanate Institute

After an internship in an industrial toxicology laboratory, Dr. Anne H. Chappelle enrolled in the pharmacology/toxicology PhD program at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy and Science (now University of the Sciences), focusing on upper respiratory tract/nasal toxicity. The next 19 years were as an industrial-chemical/regulatory toxicologist in the Philadelphia area (Huntsman Polyurethanes, Rohm & Haas, Sunoco). While the chemical dossiers may have varied, the key functions did not: provide expert chemical evaluations incorporating transparent and rigorous scientific principles, and tailored communications for the appropriate audience (consumer, regulator, CEO, worker, etc.). More recently, Dr. Chappelle has used these skills as a consultant (Chappelle Toxicology Consulting, LLC) helping small and medium sized companies interpret the science to meet regulatory requirements, and a Staff Toxicologist (International Isocyanate Institute) providing strategic management and technical expertise in diisocyanate toxicity.
