Ecotoxicology

Research into the undesirable impacts of substances on the environment.

We investigate the impacts of environmentally hazardous substances (chemicals, pesticides, pharmaceutical residues) in vitro (cell cultures), in zebra fish and bees. We place a particular emphasis on the undesirable impacts of embryonic development and reproduction and

focus on molecular impacts. One of our specialisms is the experimental analysis of the impact of steroid hormones in the environment on the reproduction and development of zebra fish. We also investigate molecular impacts of pesticides on honey bees.
