Research interests

Laura Carter is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Environment Department and is currently working on the European iPiE project on the intelligent assessment of pharmaceuticals in the environment. The iPiE project aims to develop a framework that will provide methodologies to prioritise new and existing medicinal compounds for a comprehensive environmental risk assessment. As such it will support and inform regulatory activities designed to assess and reduce the environmental impact of active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Laura’s research explores of the fate and uptake of pharmaceuticals in the environment, with particular focus on the terrestrial compartment. Since completing her PhD at The University of York, Laura has spent time as Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Commonwealth Scientific Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Adelaide, Australia where she investigated the biological effects of pharmaceutical uptake into plants.

Laura has presented her research at a number of international conferences and is a member of the Pharmaceutical Advisory Group of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
