Fate and Effects of Pollutants in Aquatic Environment

The expansion in anthropogenic activity since the last century had a negative impact on all areas of the environment. Whole ranges of aquatic organisms, including fish, are unintentionally exposed to a large number of anthropogenic compounds in their natural habitats.

Great science provided, we encourage you to collaborate on cutting edge research.

Our research is focused on:

  • Detection of wide spectra of extraneous substances in aquatic environment compartments e.g. pharmaceuticals, illicit drugs, UV filters and pesticides
  • Development of new progressive instrumental methods for screening of new compounds
  • Investigation of effect of pollution on exposed organisms, both field and laboratory studies and new omics approaches
  • Biomonitoring and passive sampling
  • Collaboration with companies interested in water treatment technologies

The labs are equipped with advanced analytical instruments as:




Instruments essential for analyses of biochemical parameters.
