Analytical & Environmental Sciences

Organisational unit: Department

Organisation profile

A key aim of the Division is to integrate research into fundamental mechanisms of human toxicity with aspects of environmental and regulatory toxicology. A clear intent is to apply cutting edge analytical science and technology to environmental toxicology, and to provide opportunities for a thorough training in all aspects of the discipline. In this respect the Analytical and Environmental Sciences groups that make up the new Division complement, as well as provide support for each other.

Specific examples include improvements to aid detection of drug-facilitated sexual assaults and other vulnerable groups, such as children, the chemical profiling of fingerprints, including for drugs in their residues and use of nanoparticles for forensic purposes.

Key goals are:

  • to develop environmental exposure modelling science
  • measurement and effect science
  • biomarker science
  • to contribute to a better understanding of exposure/response relationships
  • to further the potential of exposure research to contribute to the development of evidence-based policies which will ultimately improve the quality of our lives
