RESEARCH INTERESTS

Dr. Martinović-Weigelt’s research interests include: 1) Characterization of proximate mechanisms that underlie behavior and reproduction in fish, 2) Assessment of effects of environmental stressors and contaminants (e.g., hypoxia, chemicals of emerging concern) to inform adverse outcome pathway development, 3) Optimization and development of approaches for bioeffects-based monitoring (using high-content and high-throughput approaches).

Dr. Martinović-Weigelt has co-authored 40+ research manuscripts that assess occurrence and the effects of chemicals of emerging concern and other stressors on fish and aquatic ecosystems, and is a recipient of research funding from a variety of state and federal agencies including U.S. Environmental Pollution Agency, U.S. Geological Survey, National Science Foundation, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.

Dalma Martinovic, Jennifer T. McGuire

There is increasing public interest and concern over the connections between environmental quality and human health. This course will explore these connections by providing an introduction to the multidisciplinary field of environmental toxicology- the study of the adverse effects of chemical, biological, and physical agents in the environment on living organisms, including humans. Topics will cover global and local problems including issues of environmental justice and future approaches to sustainably mitigate the major environmental health problems in industrialized and developing countries. Four laboratory hours per week. Prerequisite: BIOL 207, BIOL 208 and a minimum grade of C- in BIOL 209
