Environmental Science

Research themes in the field of Environmental Science include biodiversity, ecology and conservation, toxicology and health, biofuels, and environmental chemistry. Below are some examples of our recent research:

 

 

 

Sophisticated techniques involved in the toxicology research include the differential gene expression and proteomic studies, molecular toxicological approach with the use of gene cloning and DNA array as well as the use of enzyme markers or reporter gene systems for the evaluations of potential health risks of the environmental contaminants including endocrine disruptors.
Both mammalian models and fish models are being used for toxicity assessments
