The lab actively conducts scientific research into the fields of environmental and molecular toxicology. Our main focus is directed towards the investigation of mechanisms involved in the biotransformation of legacy compounds as well as chemicals of emerging concern and the use of metabolomics in toxicity assessments in fish and in vitro systems.
