Abstract:
The research group Systemic Physiological and Ecotoxicological Research (SPHERE) of the University of Antwerp holds this name since 2012, and was formerly known as Ecophysiology, Biochemistry and Toxicology (EB&T). The group was founded in 1973 and was initially named laboratory of Biochemistry and General Zoology. SPHERE conducts research on important issues of environmental and adaptational biology. The research group focuses on how organisms respond to environmental changes with an emphasis on the different levels of biological organisation: from the molecular level (including genomics, proteomics and metabolomics) to the broader response of populations in real field situations.

Within the marine domain, SPHERE studies the following topics:
- The combined effects of temperature, hypoxia, carbon dioxide and nitrogen on the ion regulation of fish, in particular the effect on the energy budget and hormones;
- Trophic transfer and bioaccumulation of contaminants in food webs in the Scheldt estuary;
- The intake and toxicity of metals in the European sea bass - The development of a biotic ligand model (BLM) for the metals copper (Cu) and cadmium (Cd) in marine and estuarine areas for key species such as the European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.);
- Study of the presence of heavy metals in spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias);
- Study of vegetable protein sources that can be used as food for fish and shellfish.

SPHERE participates within several marine projects dealing with topics such as the effects of pollutants on populations and benthic communities in the North Sea, and the influence and recovery of anthropogenic interventions on fish populations. The network of the research group includes both Belgian and international universities as well as Flemish scientific institutes such as the Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO).
