Module description

This module offers you the opportunity to study the impacts of chemicals on wildlife and human health. It provides an excellent grounding on the basic principles of how chemicals alter the way our bodies work and what the implications for exposure to various pollutants are for wildlife health. Ecotoxicology is highly interdisciplinary and this module will cover aspects of environmental biology and chemistry, animal physiology, behaviour, molecular biology, and risk assessment. The module is taught by world leading researchers in ecotoxicology with specialisms in areas including chemical mechanisms, endocrine disruption and plastics pollution.
