Environmental Health and Toxicology

Environmental health and toxicology mainly focuses on the exposure of organisms to toxic agents, as well as examination of the molecular and physiological processes that are impacted by these exposures like heavy metals, toxic elements, organic chemicals, pesticides etc. Environmental Toxicology is a rapidly developing field concerned with the research of natural and man-made pollutants which impact the health of humans, wildlife, and whole ecosystems. It involves application of a variety of techniques to study the impact of toxic substances or agents on living organisms and provides powerful tools for assessing the risks associated with the presence of these agents.

The field of toxicology is focused on developing improved ways to identify and ameliorate the harmful effects of chemical, physical, and biological agents at all levels of biological organization, from molecules to complex ecosystems. University of Washington toxicologists investigate a broad scope of the field and integrate tools and methods of biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, epidemiology and biostatistics.
