Summer Course on Ecotoxicology
Xiamen University, Xiamen, China
June 30-July 11, 2008
Introduction:
The summer course on toxicology will be jointly organized by the State Key Laboratory of
Marine Environmental Science, Xiamen University and the Center for Marine
Environmental Research and Innovative Technology (MERIT), an Area of Excellence in
Hong Kong, from June 30 to July 11, 2008.
Ecotoxicology is an interdisciplinary subject in which ecological and biological effects of
chemical contamination are assessed. This course provides a broad overview of different
aspects of ecotoxicology, including environmental chemistry, toxicology, ecology, and risk
assessment. A number of national and international experts will deliver lectures and
discuss contemporary issues and recent advancements in Ecotoxicology.
Credit: 1 credit
Organizers: State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science, Xiamen University;
MERIT (Area of Excellence), Hong Kong
Organizing committee: Drs Kejian Wang, Xinhong Wang, Dazhi Wang, Ming Yang,
and Ms. Wei Shi, Xiamen University;
Dr Doris Au, City University of Hong Kong
Who should join:
Undergraduate, master and doctoral students in Ecotoxicology, Chemistry, Biology and
environmental sciences, if you are willing to know more about current progress of
environmental science and make more friends, please don’t hesitate to join us.
Assistant opportunity:
We need a student to provide assistance for the summer course, to help with the
organizing of lectures and field trips, with good opportunities to have close
communication with well-known scientists and to practice your English!
Financial support:
The State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science (Xiamen University) would
like to support 8 students (from Hong Kong or mainland, not including students from
Xiamen) at the amount of up to 3000 RMB for each to attend the summer course, which
can be spent for travel and/or accommodation. If you want to apply for the fund, please
indicate it in the application form. Please note that the deadline for fund application is
May 31st, 2008.
