My research focuses on establishing molecular biomarkers of exposure to chemical stressors for aquatic organisms. This has largely been accomplished through the identification of transcriptional and proteomic changes in response to stressors, using molecular techniques, such as quantitative polymerase chain reaction (QPCR), microarrays, and 2-D polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2-D PAGE). These biomarkers may be integrated into existing monitoring and stressor identification frameworks to add specificity and biological context for exposure.
