We are focused on enhancing the understanding of the chemical pollution on marine ecosystems with a view to identifying and mitigating those that pose a significant threat to their ecological integrity and provide the scientific basis to be developed environmental criteria and standards for the protection of coastal marine ecosystems. We operate in the framework of projects funded by the European Union, the Ministry of Science and Innovation, the Ministry of Environment of the Galician regional government and other institutions with environmental responsibilities and contracts with public and private entities. Our research has generated 9 doctoral thesis concluded, more than 100 scientific publications.

Our main resarch line is marine pollution using an integrated chemical-biological approach; developing tools combining biological testing and chemical analysis for monitoring and assessment of pollutants and their biological effects.
