The Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory
The Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory at the University of Nebraska at Omaha has three interrelated goals: 1) to conduct research regarding water quality and environmental health, 2) the training and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate (MS and Ph.D.) students, and 3) the development of novel bio-assessment tools, for research, education and outreach.
Who We Are
Working with Dr. Kolok, the director of the lab, are undergraduate and graduate students from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Nebraska Medical Center. If you'd like to be involved with our lab, please contact us.
Our research at the Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory focuses on the ecological and human health effects of toxins, pollutants and emerging contaminants in aquatic environments, especially in Nebraska. Visit the What We Do page to learn more about the research we conduct.
The 1150 sq. ft. laboratory is in Allwine Hall, the Biology building at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The Aquatic Toxicology Laboratory houses all of the equipment necessary to conduct gene expression and histological analysis.
