An increasing number of chemicals is used by society today, which are also released into the environment. Ecotoxicology is concerned with their potential impacts on the ecosystem. It aims to investigate effects of chemicals on biological systems in order to develop methods for risk assessment and management as well as to predict ecological consequences.
The international masters program in Ecotoxicology integrates concepts of Environmental Chemistry, Toxicology and Ecology and includes Social Science and Economics as well. Due to its interdisciplinary and applied approach, the program enables its graduates to analyze complex problems and to develop practical solutions. As environmental problems reach far beyond national borders, an international approach is necessary and the situation in developing countries needs special attention.
The interdisciplinary research infrastruture at the Institute for Environmental Sciences in Landau allows cutting-edge ecotoxicological research. Our researchers are thus well appreciated collaborators in international research projects and advisory groups.
Our blog aims to keep students, staff, and all interested parties informed about the latest news regarding Landau’s masters program in Ecotoxicology and related research.
