Study of Endocrine Disruption Chemicals

  • Home

    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.

    Unique to RMCC, the Environmental Science program and Biology courses are a part of the Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Department, strengthening the multidisciplinary research approach within our department.

Our lab in PLOS ONE: Transcriptional profiling in rat hair follicles following simulated blast insult: A new diagnostic tool for traumatic brain injury

Congratulations to Jing Zhang! His first postdoctoral paper has recently been accepted in PLOS ONE. This work was a collaboration between RMCC, Defence Research and Development Canada and University of New Brunswick. Terrific work Jing! – Langlois Lab Zhang J, Carnduff L, Norman G, Josey T, Wang Y, Sawyer T Martyniuk CJ and VS Langlois.
