Research Interests

Faculty research interests include most areas of toxicology, with particular emphasis on understanding the links between the environment and health risks, the mode of action of toxicants and disease pathogenesis, and how emerging knowledge could be translated into prevention strategies, new therapeutic interventions and an improved scientific basis for risk assessment. These interests reflect traditional disease- and/or organ-centric research areas in toxicology and the existing strengths of our current faculty. The main research areas include:
