About Gerard Swaen Associate Professor at Maastricht University, Genetics and Cell Biology

Gerard Swaen received his epidemiology training at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in Baltimore, 1981-1982. After returning to the Netherlands he received a grant for a study on coke oven workers. He got his doctorate on this topic in 1989. At that time he worked at the department of Occupational Medicine of the Maastricht University where he managed a small research group in occupational epidemiology. In 2004 he changed jobs and started working at a large chemical company, the Dow chemical company with its main office in Midland Michigan. In 2012 there was a large reorganization and he returned to the Maastricht university, with a small position there. He has been a member of the Dutch Health Council Committee on occupational standards for about 30 years.  Gerards two interests are: 1. meta research on how epidemiology studies are conducted and 2. The long term health effects of exposure to chemicals. He is author or co-author of about 140 journal articles. His focuss now is on research integrity, with two PhD students. He also does some epidemiology consulting for industry and others.
