About This Project
Understanding how bioavailable contaminants affect animal physiological performance, immunological functions, and disease susceptibility is crucial to our ability to predict disease outbreaks in the face of combined environmental stressors. This research will assess how chronic exposure to contamination effects an individual's ability to fight off infection and disease and to escape predation.
