Media Coverage

Our research on endocrine disrupting chemicals has been communicated widely to the public and received extensive press coverage over time.


In 2004, our work on the application of transcriptomics approaches to understand the effects of oestrogenic chemicals in fish was presented at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition.


In 2011, our work on endocrine disrupting chemicals received the Exeter Impact Award for Outstanding Impact in Public Policy and Services.


In 2013, our work on metal tolerance in brown trout received extensive local, national and international media coverage and was featured in the ITV news.
