RECETOX is a research center at the Masaryk University Faculty of Science. In 2018 it celebrated 35 years of existence. At RECETOX we are engaged in research and education in the management of environmental and health risks associated with the chemicals around us.


Our research groups focus on environmental contaminants. They study their behavior in the environment, employ advanced techniques for modeling their long-distance transport and bioaccumulation in living organisms, as well as their health effects on organisms, humans, and populations.

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 the outputs of research and development activities are translated into policy – forming new legislation or contributing to bans on production of harmful substances or the products containing them.
