(Bio)geochemistry of toxic trace elements

The bioavailability, bioaccessibility and toxicity of many trace elements founds in the environment often depends critically on the nature of the chemical speciation of those elements in various geological and biological reservoirs. Tools for molecular environmental analysis provided by the Williamson Research Centre and collaborating institutions therefore underpin research into the controls on the hazards, exposure routes and health risks associated with chemicals in the environment.
