Biomedical Sciences

We seek to improve human health and understand environmental interactions influencing human health, through development of new therapeutics, understanding the pharmacology/toxicology of compounds that may be released into the environment or influenced by environmental stressors, and quantifying the properties of materials to better understand their behaviors in humans and the broader environment.    Bioavailability and pharmacology of chemicals and engineered nanomaterials are essential areas of inquiry during the design of therapeutics and the evaluation of toxicant effects.
