[Perspectives] Mathuros Ruchirawat: leading light in pollution control

By the time she was in high school, Mathuros Ruchirawat had already figured out her professional calling. “I’m a scientist at heart”, says Ruchirawat, now Professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology at Mahidol University in Thailand and Vice President of Research and Academic Affairs at the Chulabhorn Research Institute (CRI) where she oversees nine research laboratories. Somehow she also finds time to direct a major research and educational enterprise at Thailand’s Center of Excellence on Environmental Health and Toxicology (EHT).
