MU is the second largest university in the Czech Republic. The Research Centre for Toxic Compounds in the Environment (RECETOX) is the largest department at the Faculty of Science of MU recognised internationally for their research on chemical exposures and their impact on ecosystems and human health. RECETOX has an expertise in the assessment of sources of legacy and emerging pollutants, their environmental fate, levels and impacts, human exposure pathways, tissue levels, toxicological effects and associated risks. It is a leading institution in endocrine disruption related research in the Czech Republic. RECETOX research infrastructure consists of environmental monitoring networks, human cohorts, accredited trace analytical laboratories and environmental databases and information systems. The experts from Division of Environmental Chemistry and Modelling, Division of Ecotoxicology and RECETOX research infrastructure focused on human cohorts will collaborate within ERGO. The former one offers advanced instrumentation to study the environmental fate of chemicals and exposure patterns in various environmental media as well as in human samples. The Division of Ecotoxicology covers research in the field of toxicity and ecotoxicity assessment of environmental pollutants and complex matrices, including development of advanced biodetection systems for practical use such as in evaluation of endocrine disruptive potency of compounds and their mixtures. The birth cohort CELSPAC, initiated as a collaborative project of Masaryk University and University Hospital Brno, Czech Republic, aims to assess multiple factors potentially affecting children´s health. In the last decade, MU-RECETOX scientists coordinated two FP5 projects and participated in three FP6 projects. They have been participating in eight FP7 projects (isoSoil, ArcRisk, AquaRehab, EuroEcotox, TaToo, REFORM, SOLUTIONs and DENAMIC).
