To identify and reduce environmental risks caused by the use of human pharmaceuticals.
1) To identify human pharmaceuticals that are likely to be of concern to aquatic ecosystems, 2) To address the risk for antibiotic resistance promotion in the environment, 3) To propose risk management strategies, in particular, improved regulatory test requirements and wastewater treatment technologies.
