Current and Recent Research Projects

Characterizing the relative sensitivity of white sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus) to halogenated aromatic hydrocarbon (HAH) exposure and developing a novel species sensitivity tool in fishes through examining aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) ligand binding domain amino acid sequences This work will supplement our knowledge of the risk posed to endangered white sturgeon by anthropogenic pollutants and in the ecological risk assessment of many other fish species to HAH exposure.
