See Hahn Lab home page

Chemical-biological interactions, especially receptor-mediated mechanisms governing interactions of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (especially chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls) with fish and other aquatic wildlife. Major focus is on the comparative biochemistry and molecular biology of the aryl hydrocarbon (Ah) receptor. Related interests include: Endocrine disruption by environmental contaminants. Regulation of cytochrome P450 forms in aquatic species. Cell culture systems in aquatic toxicology. Biological effects of marine natural products.
