Marine Contaminants and Disease

We are evaluating the acute and chronic effects of contaminant exposures to marine fish health, paying particular attention to the impacts of contaminant exposure on susceptibility to infectious and parasitic diseases. Current work involves assessing the impacts of exposure to poly aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s) and poly chlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s) on subsequent disease susceptibility.
