Pesticide Toxicology Lab

Insect Toxicology/Phytochemicals

Our research in the insect toxicology area is focused primarily on plant-derived products that have insecticidal, insect repellent, or antifeedant properties.

Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry

Our studies on the environmental fate and effects of agrochemicals include projects that address the insecticidal protein toxin in transgenic crops (e.g. Bt corn), veterinary antibiotics in soil and water, and phytoremediation of conventional pesticides in soil, water, and plants.
