Michael H. Fulton, Ph.D.

Research Interest:
Aquatic toxicology, physiology of marine organisms. Research in my laboratory is broadly focused on characterizing the lethal and sublethal effects of anthropogenic contaminants (pesticides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, metals, emerging contaminants) on estuarine vertebrate and invertebrate populations.
