Developmental toxicology involves many different fields of science:
Scientists can study the effects of developmental toxicants at many levels:
At Oregon State University, Dr. Robert Tanguay and his team are working to discover how exposure to toxic chemicals affects the health of developing humans and other vertebrates. They believe that even short-term, temporary exposure to chemicals in the environment will have lasting negative effects of the development and function of the organism.
Graduate students and other researchers working for Dr. Tanguay are studying the negative effects that certain chemicals can have on zebrafish development. These include ethanol (found in all alcoholic beverages), nicotine (found in tobacco products), pesticides, and dioxins. They ask questions such as:
