RECETOX is looking for volunteers: Investigation of the occurrence of pesticides in the human population
An international research project, in which RECETOX experts also participate, is to map and compare the situation in the Czech Republic, Latvia, Hungary, Netherlands and Spain.
Our research groups focus on
- environmental contaminants,
- study their behavior in the environment,
- employ advanced techniques for modeling their long-distance transport,
- bioaccumulation in living organisms, and
- their health effect on organisms, humans, and populations.
Education and training
We provide education at all levels of university studies in following interdisciplinary and attractive study programmes:
- Environment and Health
- Computational Biology and Biomedicine.
“At RECETOX, we deal with the interdisciplinary research and education in the area of environment and health.”prof. Jana Klánová

Research Infrastructure (RI)
RECETOX RI provides access to technologies and services in three unique core facilities:
- Trace Analytical Laboratories,
- Population studies,
- Information systems.
Science and Society
RECETOX closely cooperates with national and international institutions in implementing international treaties and conventions, through the National Center for Toxic Compounds and the Stockholm Convention Regional Center.
Doing so, ensures that results of research and development activities are translated into policy – forming of new legislation or contributing to a ban on production of harmful substances or products containing them.
