Research Interests

Professor Chan holds the Canada Research Chair in Toxicology and Environmental Health. He studies the exposure of chemical contaminants found in the diet and the environment, particularly among Indigenous Peoples. Dr. Chan assesses the effects of these contaminants on ecosystem health and human health and develops new tools for risk assessment.  In the laboratory, he uses different models, and biochemical techniques to better understand how chemicals affect the biological functions of wildlife and humans. His goal is to develop effective tools and programs for the management and promotion of environmental health for human populations.
