Uptake and biotransformation of xenobiotics.
Factors affecting the metabolism and toxicity of drugs and other xenobiotics in humans and animal species, including aquatic species. This laboratory studies mechanisms of uptake, biotransformation, excretion and toxicity of xenobiotics, especially environmental chemicals. Another interest is the influence of xenobiotics on the metabolism of hormones. Techniques used include enzyme assays, analytical chemistry, enzyme purification, molecular biology, radiochemistry
