SETAC Europe 2023: PBMS studies will be presented in Dublin

The PBMS team will present their studies at the 33rd annual meeting of SETAC (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) Europe held from the 30th of April to the 4th of May 2023 in Dublin, Ireland.

- Gloria Pereira will present a study on “Using the Northern Gannet (Morus bassanus) to Monitor Environmental Changes of PFAS Prior and After Restrictions.” In the session “Application of Biomonitoring Approaches to Support Surveillance of Chemical Exposure in the Environment” (Monday the 1st of May, 08:45 - 10:05). The gannet eggs used in the study were collected by the PBMS.

- Shinji Ozaki will present a poster on a study entitled “Influence of seasonality on the temporal trend assessment of wildlife exposure to second-generation anticoagulant rodenticides: a case study for UK Common Buzzards (Buteo buteo) from 2001 to 2019” on Wednesday the 3rd of May. This study was carried out as part of the Life APEX project (, and PBMS provided the buzzard livers used in this study.

- Paola Movalli, a long-term collaborator of the PBMS affiliated with the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, Netherlands, will present an e-poster on a study as part of the Life APEX project: “Time trends in PCB and PBDE congeners and in ΣPCBs and ΣPBDEs residue concentrations in the common buzzard Buteo buteo in the Netherlands 1994-2020 in relation to restrictions on chemicals use.” The PBMS contributed to the study by providing scientific support.

- In addition, Lee Walker is one of the chairs of the scientific session: “Field Studies, Monitoring and Effects Research in Wildlife” (Wednesday the 3rd of May, 08:45 - 10:05), which aims to understand the real impact of regulated and/or non-regulated contaminants on individuals and populations.

Over the next few weeks, the posters from the conference will be published in the PBMS website
