KASHIWADA, Shosaku Professor

Fish Aquatic Eco-Toxicology, Environmental Chemistry, Nanotoxicology、and Molecular Eco-Toxicology.

I have been investigating ecological impacts of environmental pollutants in aquatic ecosystem using knowledge of biology, pharmacology, medical sciences, ecology, and chemistry for at least two decades. My research’s final goal is to elucidate and/or find out any anthropogenetic implication on ecological evolution by environmental pollution, indeed to contribute to environmental conservation from human activity.
