    Dr. Frank von Hippel "Ecotoxicology of freshwater fishes in Alaska: endocrine disruption, food web dynamics, and effects on the health of indigenous people" Seminar held on Friday, February 27, 2015 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. at the UAA ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building. UAA hosts an active program for Biological Sciences seminars. This video is of our second seminar of the spring 2015 semester given by UAA Professor of Biological Sciences, Dr. Frank von Hippel. The von Hippel Lab studies problems in ecotoxicology, evolutionary ecology and conversation biology using the stickleback as a model system. To learn more about Dr. von Hippel, please visit his website at www.uaa.alaska.edu/biological-sciences/faculty-and-staff/vonhippel.cfm. Seminar Abstract: This seminar examines the ecotoxicology of mercury, PCBs, PBDEs, PFCs, and pesticides in Alaskan freshwater fishes. Formerly used defense sites (FUDS) and global distillation of contaminants are considered in the context of exposure pathways and health threats to Alaska Native communities. This work takes advantage of fish as model organisms to investigate bioaccumulation, biomagnification, endocrine disruption and altered gene expression in contaminated sites. All seminars in this series are held in the ConocoPhillips Integrated Sciences Building on Fridays at 3:30 pm in CPISB 120 (unless noted otherwise). Our seminar series is free and open to the public. Parking is complimentary on UAA's campus on Fridays. The new CPISB is located north of Providence Hospital and behind the Admin Building. Please call 786-1298 for directions or insert this address (3101 Science Circle, Anchorage, AK 99508) for Map Directions.
