Ecotoxicology Group —— Research Areas

Environmental fate, ecotoxicological effects, and toxic mechanism of persistent organic pollutants (POPs).

We focus on the environmental distribution and process of persistent organic pollutants, such as perfluorochemicals and halogenated compounds, the response of biota (especially terraneous mammals) to pollutants on molecular, cellular, organismal and community levels; investigate the transcriptional and translational alterations of genes and their regulation under stress environments using genomic and proteomic analysis method; look for potential cellular and molecular biomarkers as diagnostic and prognostic tools for pollution monitoring, as well as degradation methods and technologies for POPs in environment.
