Aquatic Research Consortium

Goals and Objectives

The overall goal of ARC is to develop and apply state-of-the-art molecular and phenotypic tools in three small teleost fish models:

These enhanced models will be used to characterize the effects of environmental stressors (i.e., pollutants, poor water quality) at several levels of biological organization.

The overall objective of this research is to investigate the effects of hypoxia, PAHs, heavy metals and hypoxia/PAH combinations in small fish models
