Ana Rita Pereira, one of our pHD students participated last week in the II TOXRUN International Congress – 27-28th of April at Porto, presenting a poster about the potential risks of environmental contaminants on compromising drinking water disinfection. Her participation highlights the urgency to implement new strategies for mitigating the potential ecotoxicological and human health risks from pollutants introduced by humans. One health, one society, one planet must be the mandatory key to achieving a balanced daily routine without compromising our lives!
