Toxicological Centre (T_TOX)

Research Group

Lifecycle:1 Oct 2003  →  Today
Organisation profile:1) The research is situated in the field of environmental toxicology of organic pollutants. Environmental distribution and fate of persistent organic pollutants such as PCBs, organochlorinated pesticides and brominated flame retardants are studied.The analytical methods are developed, optimised and applied on a broad spectrum of samples. Mostly biotic samples are studied, both from aquatic and terrestrial food webs, including humans. Also sediments and soil can be investigated for the presence of the compounds.2) Another field of research is forensic toxicology. Drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals and a wide range of toxic chemicals are investigated in a wide range of human matrices. Also other samples can be analysed, such as potentially toxic powders and solutions.
