The aquatic toxicology laboratory performs aquatic toxicity tests on a variety of fish species including largemouth bass, fathead minnow, sheepshead minnow. we look at fish exposure to environmental contaminants and study relationships between affected species and ecosystem health.
Our analytical toxicology core laboratory provides qualitative and/or quantitative chemical analysis to researchers on campus at UF and elsewhere. We support basic and applied research through sophistocated methodology and state-of-the-art instrumentation.
CEHT’s director, Dr. Steve Roberts, explains research evaluating the safety of nanomaterials.
Dr. Nancy Denslow explains her interest in research and collaboration to learn about toxins affecting the health of fish.
Our researchers are using sophistocated CRISPR gene-editing technology to move science forward. Dr. Chris Vulpe and his team lead this effort at CEHT.
