ECOTOXICOLOGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMISTRY
Evaluation of levels, fate, transport and environmental risk for many pollutants classes, mainly referred to emerging contaminants (pharmaceuticals, illicit drugs, nanomaterials), by means biomarkers and functional proteomics, as well as ecotoxicological tests and advanced analytical techniques (GC-MS/MS).

Keywords: ecotoxicology, biomonitoring, biomarkers, nanomaterials, emerging pollutants
Main topics of the group: Evaluation of mechanisms of toxicity of legacy and emerging pollutants in aquatic species. Biomonitorning studies and evaluation of toxic effects in natural exposure conditions. Application of omics techniques for evaluating changes in the protein pattern and expressing specific genes in response to exposure to contaminants. Enzyme assays for evaluating the activity of proteins involved in the metabolism/detoxification of contaminants, cyto-genotoxicity, oxidative stress and neurotoxicity.
