Personal information

Dr. Jessica Legradi works as an assistant Professor at the department Environment and Health. She teaches toxicology at BSc and MSc level at the VU. Her research focuses on studying the toxicological effects of environmental contaminants using zebrafish embryos (Danio rerio). She identifies mechanisms of toxicity of environmental pollutants and develops new specific bioassays also applicable for chemical toxicity screening. Within several European projects she characterized the toxic potential and identified the mechanisms of toxicity of different chemicals found in the environment. Therefore she applied and adapted state of the art genomics, proteomics and metabolomics technologies. Moreover, she worked on biological test systems that can guide contaminant detection in complex environmental samples by combining bioassays with analytical chemical analysis methods (EDA). During the last years she developed a strong interest for  behavioural testing and neurotoxicity.
