General information

Leading scientist's research interests: Bio-chemistry, analytical chemistry, toxicology of metals and persistent chloro-organic compounds, environmental and occupational aspects of human health, data quality assurance.

Quote by the head of the laboratory: Biomonitoring of humans allows for assessment of which substances from the environment enter our bodies and how, as well as how their impact can change over time. By measuring the concentration of natural and synthetic components in body fluids or tissues, biomonitoring can provide valuable information concerning impact of the environment and in some cases can help in identification of potential health risks.
