Biographical Information

"John Peterson Myers is founder, CEO and Chief Scientist of Environmental Health Sciences. Pete Myers holds a doctorate in the biological sciences from the UC Berkeley and a BA from Reed College. For a dozen years beginning in 1990, Myers served as Director of the W. Alton Jones Foundation in Charlottesville, Virginia. Along with co-authors Dr. Theo Colborn and Dianne Dumanoski, Myers wrote Our Stolen Future, a book (1996) that explores the scientific basis of concern for how contamination threatens fetal development. He has published the website since that book was published, synthesizing hundreds of scientific articles about endocrine disruption to make them accessible to the media and the lay public.

"Myers is now actively involved in primary research on the impacts of endocrine disruption on human health. He is on the boards of the John Heinz Center for Science, Economics and the Environment, the Environmental Grantmakers Association, and the Jenifer Altman Foundation. Until its merger with Pew Charitable Trust in late 2007, he served as Board Chair of the National Environmental Trust. He has also served as Board President of the Consultative Group on Biological Diversity, an association of 40+ foundations supporting work on biodiversity, climate, energy and environmental health."
