Outlook

Water and Human Health in Urban Systems – Toxicology and epidemiology, microbiology and risk assessment

The 1st summer school within this row (2015 to 2017) is dedicated to the quality of water in metropolitan areas with respect to chemical and microbiological contaminants. Numerous studies have shown that a multitude of micro pollutants, some of them with toxic, carcinogenic, endocrine or resistancepromoting effects is present in urban aquatic systems and that pathogens are often hard to detect, e.g. in VBNC state, and thus their prevalence might be underestimated.

The summer school 2015 is being held from September, 28th to October 11th. That means that you should catch a travel to arrive on September 27th.
