Environmental Chemical Pollution & Health Research Unit (ECPH)

The Environmental Chemical Pollution and Health (ECPH) Research Unit was established through a collaborative partnership between the Faculty of Health Sciences' School of Health Systems and Public Health (SHSPH) and Andrology in the Department of Urology. The Unit uses the EDC and Toxicology laboratories. The Andrology laboratory functions as a clinical and research laboratory that investigates male reproductive health. The EDC component offers a comprehensive battery of bio-assays for estrogenic and androgenic activity in environmental samples and specific chemicals.  The Toxicology section is primarily a research laboratory to assess reproductive health in humans and wildlife. The Unit conducts research on the occurrence, health effects and projected future impacts of chemicals, especially EDCs, on environmental pollution and health.
