ENVIRONMENTAL AND HEALTH TOXICOLOGY AND MICROBIOLOGY

• Basic and applied research on environmental aspects: toxicology and microbiology.


• Product safety and formulation according to European directives.


• Detection of biofilms on surfaces, biodegradation of polymers and disinfection strategies.


• Study of cell changes caused by the action of drugs, contaminants and microorganisms.


• Ecotoxicology of chemical and biological contaminants in aquatic and terrestrial environments.


•  Physiological and histopathological effects on aquatic organisms.


• In vitro toxicity tests using cells and alternative systems.


• Biochemical and enzyme studies of xenobiotics.


• Development of new toxicity and viability assays.


• Studies of toxicity, bioaccumulation and biodegradation of potential chemical and biological contaminants in industrial products and diverse materials.


• Study and development of biosensors.


• Analysis of specific biomarkers.
