Profile Introduction

Dr. Connon's research focus is on the assessment of molecular responses to chemical insult, their links to higher levels of organization, and how these tools can best be used as tools for monitoring aquatic systems. His interest in water quality is both in terms of human consumption and environmental health, and currently utilizes fish models towards understanding the mechanism(s) of action of agricultural and urban contaminants; with a particular interest in pesticides and pharmaceuticals in the aquatic environment.
