Environmental Health and Risk Management
The Division of Environmental Health and Risk Management (DEHRM) is based in the well-equipped, purpose-built facilities of the University's Public Health Building.
Their research attracts extensive funding from many sources, including: the Department of Transport; the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; the Environment Agency; the Department of Health; the Food Standards Agency; the NERC; the EPSRC; the BBSRC; the Leverhulme Trust; and European programmes. The collaborative nature of much of this work, together with the mix of pure, strategic and applied research, often involving interdisciplinary teams spanning physical, biological, chemical, medical and social sciences, provides a dynamic and internationally recognised research environment.

Aquatic chemistry and pollution research
Research into aspects of aquatic chemistry (Dr Jamie Lead) focuses on chemical (particularly trace metal) speciation in natural aquatic systems, the characterisation of naturally occurring colloidal ligands, and the development and use of novel analytical techniques. Natural and engineered nanoparticles are a particular focus of interest.
