The Food Safety and Environmental Stewardship Laboratory at Oregon State University provides chemical and toxicological information from pesticide residue studies to support registration of pesticides for use on Oregon's minor crops. High quality analytical data are provided, backed by scientific studies that insure the data are defensible.

Our research is focused in the field of environmental forensic chemistry which involves the application of chemical concepts to the interpretation, distribution, speciation, and bioavailability of chemicals in the environment (often litigious). We focus on persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic chemicals. We are working at several field sites, mostly throughout the state of Oregon, including the Portland Harbor Superfund Site, and several sites on the Willamette River. We work in several eco-system compartments: dominantly fish, surface waters and sediments. In addition, to classical techniques, we work on development and evaluation of in-situ techniques which mimic organisms, in order to better understand bioavailability. We also look at the effect of episodic events/inputs into an eco-system.
