Fred Dolislager

Human Health and Environmental Risk Assessor


Bryan College, Dayton, TN (1985-1988) B.S. Natural Science (cum laude)


I am a human health and environmental risk assessor at the University of Tennessee. My work is supported by grants and awards through The Institute for Environmental Modeling in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology. One of my premier projects is The Risk Assessment Information System (RAIS).

My professional mission statement is "Apply risk management practices to ensure implementation of effective and innovative environmental restoration techniques at hazardous waste sites through the development of risk assessment models and establishment of national guidance and policy."

My work with Superfund, developing national guidance and policy, through computational websites, helps me be an effective risk assessor when doing site assessments or reviewing the work of others. Particularly, my involvement with the Regional Screening Levels for chemicals and multiple PRG websites for radionuclides keeps my work state of the art.
