Katrine Borgå's research group study contaminant dynamics across and within ecosystems.
Silje and Julie receive awards for best poster the the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science's annual PhD Day event.
In May, some of us from the research group went to the 2018 SETAC conference in Rome.
Two projects from our research group are featured in the freshly released issue of the scientific magazine Apollon (2/2018). One of the projects was also featured on forskning.no and on several radio shows yesterday (Monday). All features are in Norwegian, but here on our blog you can read an English summary.
MULTICLIM kickoff-seminar 23.-24.04.2018
A new and exciting project is starting up at IBV these days: Effects of climate change in a multiple stress multispecies perspective!
Conference participation is a great route to new inspiration, ideas and networking. Two of our masterstudents, Alexandra and Vegard, recently went to Beitostølen to present their work for the rest of the Norwegian toxicological society - and that they did with flying colours!
In my first blog entry as a PhD student here at the Department of Biosciences, I would like to introduce you to the AnthroTox crew, lead by Katrine Borgå and Paul Wenzel Geissler.
En spennende del av det å jobbe med forskning på UiO er å delta på konferanser. Og forrige uke var jeg (Julie) på en konferanse om økologi.
Idag er det fredag, helgen nærmer seg med stormskritt, og vi tenkte det passet glimrende å blåse litt nytt liv i ToksBloggen sånn på tampen av februar. Enkelte depper over OL-sølv, mens andre synes å mene det ikke er noe særlig å bry seg om!
Du finner silikapartikler overalt. I tannkremen din, munnskyllevannet, og i den rotfylte tanna di. Men er det egentlig farlig? Vi gir deg et innblikk i forskningen som foregår på akkurat dette ved NIOM (Nordisk institutt for Dentale Materialer) i disse dager.
Some of the species we work with are easiest attained before onset of winter. With summer rapidly coming to an end, Jan and I went to Drøbak this week to sample copepods and threespine sticklebacks.
22nd of August, Katrine, Danny and myself went for a short two-day trip of intensive networking in Sweden.
Welcome back to old group members, and welcome to new members!
Exciting oportunity to work with us at the project NEOPOLL on how the agricultural pesticides neonicotinoids affects pollinators under various climatic conditions.

First paper published for his PhD-thesis, well done Danny!
"Effects of reproductive strategies on pollutant concentrations in pinnipeds: a meta-analysis"
PhD student on the topic of land-ocean interactions, with a focus on how terrestrial inputs affect the flow of energy and contaminants into and through Arctic coastal ecosystems.
Animated group presentation today at BIO4530 Regulatory toxicology!
