Drinking water disinfection byproducts (DBPs) are formed unintentionally when organic matter in raw water reacts with disinfectants used to kill pathogens. Epidemiological studies have shown that an increased risk of bladder cancer is associated with consumption of chlorinated water, but little...
The oil sands landscape in northern Alberta is interspersed with large tailings ponds that hold wastewater from bitumen mining and extraction processes. Recent monitoring results indicate that annually many thousands of birds, mostly migrating waterfowl, land on the ponds associated with this...
Immune models have been highlighted in nanotoxicology for their applicability in understanding the effects of both accidental exposure (e.g. environmental exposure) and therapeutic exposure (e.g. targeted drug delivery) to nanomaterials (NMs). The experiments presented here examine the...
Proposed design for a program of toxicological research for the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research ProgramDownload
A proposed design, and supporting information, for an integrated program of toxicological research for the Alberta Oil Sands Environmental Research Program is presented. The first major section of the report (Section 2) contains background information pertinent to the development of a research...
The continuing use of crude oil and development of the oil industry have resulted in complex hydrocarbon mixtures becoming common environmental contaminants. These contaminants, such as oil sands process affected water (OSPW) and crude oil, are especially of concern in aquatic ecosystems. OSPW...
