The Trace Element Research Lab (TERL) collectively has 90+ years of experience in measurement of Trace and Toxic metals in all types of tissue, water, sediment, plants, soil, and body fluids. We are especially focused on the environmental accumulation of metals in superfund sites, on metal impacts on the neuroendocine system, and how metals impact the onset of sexual maturation. We have also worked for over 20 years on the mechanisms by which  metals (especially lead) foster the intake of drugs of abuse (alcohol, cocaine, etc).
