Ecotoxicology and environmental monitoring

Our research mainly focuses on the development of biological markers using molecular biology techniques for the purpose of environmental monitoring.

Research group leader Professor Daniela M. Pampanin has been leading environmental monitoring programmes for multiple contaminants in different countries with a specific focus on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds.

Her research has applied proteomic analyses, using mass spectrometry, and biochemistry methods to better understand the sub-lethal effects of contaminants on marine organisms. Through collaboration she has also been involved in research exploring the isolation and identification of natural bioactive peptides from fish as well as bioprospecting, adding value to fishery industry waste.

Daniela M. Pampanin is a member of the Working Group on Biological Effects of Contaminants (WGBEC) of ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Sea) and previously on the board of the Norwegian Proteomics Society. 

There are several laboratories connected to the research group at UiS. Here is an overview of equipment and facilities.
