A. Alan Moghissi

After over two decades of federal service at the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Alan Moghissi formed the Institute for Regulatory Science (RSI) in early 1985. At the EPA, Alan Moghissi held a number of positions including that of Principal Science Advisor for Radiation and Hazardous Materials. Later on, he joined the University of Maryland Baltimore as Assistant Vice President, and Temple University in Philadelphia as Associate Vice President. In both universities his portfolio included operational aspects of environmental health and safety. Alan Moghissi’s research has dealt not only with his primary area of education which includes biological and environmental kinetics, but increasingly with the development and implementation of the concept of Best Available Science (BAS) in societal–including regulatory–decisions. The BAS concept has found a wide level of acceptance as demonstrated by increasing emphasis on independent peer review. Alan Moghissi has written over 400 papers including several books, and has edited a number of scientific journals. Alan Moghissi received his training in Zurich, Switzerland and Karlsruhe, Germany where he received a doctorate degree in physical chemistry.
