Quantifying different pathways of chemical exposure to wildlife and humans is a core element of this research. Bioaccumulation concepts play a central role, and we strive to understand contaminant bioavailablility in the environment, uptake, storage, and elimination from the organism, and accumulation through food webs. Our human exposure work encompasses both the indoor and outdoor environments.

THE BIG PICTURE

ACES is part of the SECTION FOR EARTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES at Stockholm University, which covers a wide range of research into the Earth’s formation, climate and the environment.
