With the recommendation of the Innovation and Technology Commission of the HKSAR Government, the establishment of State Key Laboratory of Environmental and Biological Analysis (SKLEBA) at Hong Kong Baptist University was approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST) in July, 2013 partnered with State Key Laboratory of Environmental Chemistry and Eco-toxicology in Research Center for Eco-Environmental Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. (RCEES, CAS).
SKLEBA is an interdisciplinary research platform focusing on three correlated fields, i.e. environmental science, biological science and material science. The laboratory promotes fundamental research and develops novel analytical methods for life science, with the effect of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) on environment, food safety and public health as its prior target research objectives.
