Environmental Toxicologists @North Carolina
Environmental toxicologists are scientists who try to understand how living organisms are affected by pollution. Do they get sick more often? Are they unable to have babies? Do they act in a way that they aren’t supposed to act? Some environmental toxicologists collect information from living organisms that are exposed to pollution “in the wild” while others try to ask questions in the laboratory under very controlled conditions. Both types of toxicologists often work together to figure out if pollution can harm living organisms and they can work in many different organizations, including university, federal government, industry, and state government laboratories.
