Professor Mireille Toledano is an Investigator of the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment & Health. She has substantial expertise in environmental exposure assessment and epidemiology and, specifically, in radio frequency-electromagentic field epidemiology. Her work includes national studies of childhood cancers in proximity to mobile phone base stations and adult cancers near overhead power lines. She has led, together with Professor Paul Elliott, the UK-arm of the international cohort study on mobile phone use and health (COSMOS study), which is following the health of 105,000 UK adult mobile phone users including various symptoms, cancer and neurodegenerative disease incidence and mortality. Her experience with other non-radio frequency large scale epidemiological cohort studies includes co-leading the Environment theme for the new LIFE birth cohort study of >100,000 births.
