“Water is necessary for life and western society has come to ‘expect’ clean water, but most of the world’s population does not have access to adequate drinking water,” said Schlenk, a faculty member in the Department of Environmental Sciences. “Not only do we in the west have adequate drinking water, we have enough to use ‘drinking water’ to groom our lawns and flush our sewage down the drain. Let’s be thankful for the water we have. Let’s cherish and conserve it.” Schlenk’s research interests focus upon mechanisms of action of pesticides and emerging compounds in aquatic organisms. He received his Ph.D. in toxicology from Oregon State University in 1989. He was supported by a National Institute of Environmental Health Science postdoctoral fellowship at Duke University from 1989 to1991. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and, since 2007, he has been a permanent member of the USEPA FIFRA Science Advisory Panel which he currently chairs.
