We had our department retreat in a bit of simplified way this year to comply with the COVID-19 hygiene measures. We explored each department member’s career trajectory and had some fun with mini-golf in the afternoon.
We are now offering experimental theses again.
If you are interested in writing your Bachelor or Master Thesis at the department of Cell Toxicology you can contact Beate Escher or you can express your interest by clicking here.
Two papers in one issue of Environmental Science - Water Research and Technology!
We worked on mixture effects of drinking water disinfection by-products in a collaboration with Eawag and the University of Queensland and applied the bioassay methods targeting disinfection by-products in a study on a French drinking water treatment plant in collaboration with Veolia.
Disinfection by-products are not only relevant for drinking water treatment but will be a timely topic for environmental toxicologists due to the increased use of disinfectants in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
