Networking  E-mail

One of the main goals of the project is networking  in order to enhance the expertise of our researchers and provide training of our young researchers within some of the best laboratories in EU partner's institutions thus supporting scientific excellence.

EU partner institutions within project REP-LECOTOX. (FP6-INCO-2005-SSA3-No.043559)

  • The Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), Leipzig, Germany, established in 1991 as the first and only research centre in the Helmholtz Association to be exclusively devoted to environmental research, currently employs around 780 staff in total within 37 departments. Department Effect-Directed Analysis and Department of cell toxicology are those closely involved in support of this project proposal. Prof. Werner Brack will be the member of International Scientific Advisory Board (ISAB) in the project REP-LECOTOX. (FP6-INCO-2005-SSA3-No.043559)

  • RECETOX (Research centre for Environmental Chemistry and EcoTOXicology), established in 1994, was merged with Department of Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology, Faculty of Sciences, Masaryk University, Brno, CZ, in year 2001. The main scientific and research activities of RECETOX are focused on environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology and risk assessment with special attention to POPs. Laboratory of Aquatic and Biochemical Toxicology, and Laboratory for Environmental Chemistry are those closely involved in support of this project proposal. Prof. Ivan Holoubek will be the member of ISAB in the project REP-LECOTOX.

  • School of Biosciences, University of Birmingham, UK, encompasses a very wide range of expertise amongst academic staff. Research is organized into six research "themes": Structural Biology; Molecular Cell Biology; Molecular Microbiology; Plant Genetics and Cell Biology; Environmental Biology and Molecular Pathobiology (Mechanisms of cellular toxicity and molecular biomarkers of pollution; Biomarkers in ecotoxicology; Genetic toxicity and toxicogenomics in marine organisms). These are of international repute and have substantial research income from Research Councils, Charities and government bodies amounting to some 23 million in current contracts. The School received a Research rating of 5 in the 2001. Prof. James K. Chipman the coordinator of the Molecular Pathobiology will be the member of ISAB in the project REP-LECOTOX.

  • Animal Physiological Ecology Department of University of Tuebingen, Germany, focusses its research on the mechanisms of cellular, subcellular and physiological responses of invertebrates and fish on anthropogenic and natural stress factors in their environment, and on the ecological, ecotoxicological and evolutionary implications of these mechanisms. The Department is involved in the EU FP-6 Integrated Project NOMIRACLE working on an improved risk assessment of chemical mixtures in their environmental context in Europe. Recently, The Animal Physiological Ecology Department has coordinate an international pilot project on comprehensive biomarker application for the assessment of river pollution in Eastern Europe (Lower Mures). Prof. Heinz - R. Köhler, Head of Animal Physiological Ecology Department will be the member of ISAB in the project REP-LECOTOX.
