The Unit for Pesticide Science (UPS) addresses the health and environmental concerns relating to the use of pesticides, identifying risks and developing risk reduction and remedial strategies. The Unit has three research programmes that cover the environmental behaviour of pesticides as well as the risk of exposure of such pesticides to human health and the environment.
