Niladri Basu's research uses basic, applied, and innovative methods to evaluate ecosystem health. Research objectives are tested by means of integrative and comparative studies on multiple organisms, pollutants, levels of biological organization, neurological pathways, and techniques. Cellular events are linked to physiological and ecological processes under a "molecules-to-ecosystem" approach. His current activities focus on the development, application, and validation of neurochemical biomarkers to assess sub-clinical, neurotoxic damage in wildlife and humans; using fish and wildlife as sentinel organisms to study the etiology of diseases relevant to humans and ecosystems.
