About the Environmental Science Colloquium Series (ECo-Series)

The ECo-Series provides a forum for discussing scientific issues of societal relevance, sharing new and innovative techniques, and for interacting with other scientists, stakeholders and policy makers. Our aim is to provide entertaining, educational, and provocative events which foster discussion and creativity both within and outside of the Department.

Identifying Toxicologically Significant Compounds in Environmental Samples using in Vitro Bioassays and High Resolution Mass Spectrometry

High resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) offers the opportunity to use a single analysis to simultaneously measure concentrations of target compounds, screen for suspect compounds against large exact mass and/or MS/MS databases, and to look for unique marker compounds prior to their identification (non-target analysis).  Statistical analysis of aligned nontarget feature abundances against bioassay activity offers a means for prioritizing identification …

Adventures of a Chemist in Toxicology: DNA Adducts, Epigenetic Marks, and Proteins Trapped on DNA Strands

ACES Science Seminar Prof. Tretyakova is an analytical chemist, chemical toxicologist, and cancer researcher. Her research interests are in the areas of chemical biology, epidemiology, and medicinal chemistry. The Tretyakova lab uses cutting edge mass spectrometry and chemical biology techniques to investigate the chemical and enzymatic reactions taking place in the genome as a result of exposure to environmental chemicals, cigarette …

The ERC PrimeTime Project

Hear Birgit Wild talk about quantifying the impact of plant-soil interactions on Arctic CO2 fluxes in the next Biogeochemistry series seminar.

Bolin Centre Climate Arena 8th Workshop “Institutional barriers and enablers to achieving climate neutrality”

The Bolin Centre Climate Arena is a safe, authorized, repeated space for stakeholders from all sectors to meet with climate scientists to co-create climate solutions for Sweden. Humans add vast amounts of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere every year. This causes global warming which must be kept as low as possible to avoid passing critical planetary boundaries. The solution is …
