Frederick Berman, DVM, Ph.D.
- Director, Toxicology Information Center, CROET
My role is to direct CROET’s Toxicology Information Center (TIC). The TIC is a special library for CROET scientists and students as well as the professional community and the general public of the state of Oregon. The TIC provides a vital outreach function to citizens and professionals by responding to their inquiries about the potential hazards from exposure to chemicals. I manage the library collection and retrieve information from local libraries, online databases and the internet that is specific to individual inquiries. The goal is to provide up-to-date, unbiased information in a form that is understandable and useful to the patron. I serve as liason between the research faculty and the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences for CROET’s Superfund Basic Research Center. I also provide assistance to CROET scientists and students by doing literature research and retrieving requested reprints. Upon request, I proofread grant applications, manuscripts and correspondence for CROET scientists and students.
