Environmental Toxicology

Environmental Toxicology examines the harmful effects of various chemical, biological and physical agents on living organisms that spans the population to molecular levels. This involves the adverse effects of environmental pollutants in air, soil and water, and includes both natural and anthropogenic agents.

Our faculty have extensive expertise in both aquatic and pulmonary toxicology with a focus on phthalates, nanomaterials, asbestos, secondary organic aerosols, and metals. Our work focuses on fish and rodent models and human populations and field sampling in both domestic and global environments including Haiti and several countries in Africa. Visit the faculty profiles listed below to explore what research we are doing in Environmental Toxicology.
