Innovation in Aquatic Toxicology

  • Creating a named Chair in Predictive Aquatic Toxicology, whose team of researchers will develop novel, non-invasive and cost-effective solutions to assess chemicals that contaminate our ecosystems – one of our planet’s greatest threats.
  • Addressing an urgent worldwide demand for improved aquatic testing tools that are more efficient, affordable, and less dependent on animal studies.
  • Facilitating transformative change in the way chemicals are tested and assessed.
  • Transforming environmental and human health chemical risk assessment into a process that is significantly more cost-effective, timely, informative, and predictive.
