Interested by the impact of pollutants (e.g., pesticides, pharmaceuticals, domestic care products, industrial and military by-products) on living creatures? Our laboratory studies the effects of a variety of contaminants present in the environment, especially in aquatic ecosystems. We address and assess this environmental health issue by combining toxicology, molecular biology, comparative endocrinology, biochemistry and analytical chemistry in our study design.
