In the Department we conduct research in both basic and applied sciences. Our basic science research predominantly concerns population genetics, evolution, and toxicology, as well as biotechnologies for monitoring, protecting and restoring the environment and its resources. In the applied sciences we emphasize the development of methods to be used in environment protection, including wastewater treatment, soil remediation, heavy metal removal, waste recycling, and landfill leachate treatment.
The Department's laboratories are well equipped. This wide range of modern facilities allows us to readily conduct up-to-date research on site. Together with our professional personnel the Department creates an inspirational and friendly environment for both study and research.
