Water Quality Research
Bryan W. Brooks, Ph.D., professor of environmental science and biomedical studies in Baylor University's College of Arts & Sciences and director of the environmental science graduate program and the environmental health science program, is a prominent researcher and conducts interdisciplinary research projects that often incorporate laboratory and field studies in aquatic, environmental and comparative toxicology, environmental risk assessment, and water resources.
Brooks' research has led to the discovery of pharmaceuticals in fish, understanding of massive fish kills in Texas lakes and designing man-made chemicals to make them less toxic to humans and the environment.
