Welcome to the SeaTox Lab website

Our mission

The SeaTox Lab aims at understanding how marine fauna respond and have evolved to cope with chemical aggressors, whether anthropogenic (pollutants) or biogenic (toxins). This includes investigating how marine animals acquired the ability to produce toxins as "warfare" to avoid parasites, predation or to become predators thamselves. Our mission is to integrate the toxicologist's perspective within Marine Environmental Research and Marine biotechnology.
