Research Areas

  • Effects of natural toxins such as mycotoxins and environmental contaminants such as PCBs and dioxins on animals.
  • Exposure and health effects of environmental chemicals in mammalian species, with a focus on developmental and reproductive toxicity.
  • How environmental exposures (endocrine disruptors) during prenatal life can induce adaptative mechanisms in the developing organism leading up to pathophysiological consequences during postnatal life.
  • Screening level and baseline ecological risk assessment approaches, including the identification of contaminants and receptors of concern, site-specific data collection and analysis, derivation of toxicity reference values, risk characterization, and development of risk based clean up levels.
