French toxicologist, announced chairman of the department of toxicology at the Paris Faculty of Medicine, and known for having introduced the concept of daily intake in 1956, and for coining the term "ecotoxicology" (in 1969) defined as "the branch of toxicology concerned with the study of toxic effects, caused by natural or synthetic pollutants, to the constituents of ecosystems, animal (including human), vegetable and microbial, in an integral context." René Truhaut wrote a Handbook of occupational medicine, a book reprinted several times, which became a classic of this discipline, along with hundreds of articles in major scientific journals. He died on 10 May 1994, aged 84, in Paris.
