The Wise Laboratory of Environmental and Genetic Toxicology conducts state-of-the-art research aimed at understanding how environmental toxicants affect the health of humans and marine animals. This mission is accomplished through the pursuit of the following general objectives:

  • Collect samples from various marine, aquatic and terrestrial organisms
  • Conduct toxicology research to further our understanding of disease in marine organisms.
  • Establish new cell culture models from marine organisms.
  • Determine how environmental contaminant exposure may affect the recovery of critically endangered species including marine mammals, turtles and birds.
  • Investigate how marine pollution may impact the health of marine invertebrates such as lobsters, oysters, and corals.
  • Create a national resource and repository of marine cell lines and tissues.
