The research focus is particularly on the effects of environmental pollutants on endocrine systems (hormone systems and vitamin balance).

How do endocrine disrupting pollutants affect the ability of animals to survive, reproduce, and to adapt to natural or anthropogenic changes in the environment (such as climate change)? We have research activities in the field Norway, the Arctic (Svalbard and Greenland), the Baltic Sea and in Russia, and in the lab at NTNU.
