Research in our group focuses first on understanding how trace metals cause deleterious effects by interacting with important physiological biomolecules at the subcellular level in different tissues of aquatic organisms, and then on evaluating the biochemical and physiological consequences of these interactions from individuals to the ecosystem level.
Our main approaches include laboratory and field experiments, subcellular metal partitioning approaches and hyphenated techniques related to environmental metallomics. The in-depth knowledge of metal toxicity we generate will help to develop environmental tools to be used for the assessment of the impact of trace metals on aquatic ecosystems.
