Laboratory for Environmental and Life Sciences
About the laboratory
The Laboratory for Environmental and Life Sciences (LELS) enables intensive collaboration of environmental and analytical chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists, eco-toxicologists and ecologists. Investigations conducted at LELS include development of novel and unique ultrasensitive laser-based analytical methods, study of the fate, transport and transformations of pollutants in atmosphere, terrestrial and aquatic environments, food quality and safety, biomedical diagnostic tools, as well as identification of recombinant antibodies specific for tumor biomarkers. Cutting edge research at LELS enables new insights into environmental processes at the level of molecules, cells, organisms and ecosystems, their interactions and interrelation with life processes in organisms and human body, including cellular antioxidant activity, antimicrobial activities, biological processes regulating the virus trafficking, cancer diagnostics and therapy.
