On March 8, 2017, Georgia Aquarium staff and volunteers were treated to a lecture by Dr. Anders Goksøyr, Head of the Department of Biology at the University of Bergen, Norway where he discussed one of his projects, “Polar bear ecotoxicology- establishing understanding through toxicogenomic and ex-situ approaches”. While on sabbatical from the University of Bergen, Dr. Goksøyr visited Georgia Aquarium because of our commitment to the concept of One Health; which believes that human, environmental, animal and plant health are all connected and each influences the other.  Dr. Goksøyr has been a proponent of One Health in Europe for many years. He has authored over 130 scientific publications and over 250 conference abstracts.
