Researcher Interview Series

UpClose takes readers behind the scenes of the latest research on pharmaceuticals, microplastics, and other emerging contaminants. Each edition of the award-winning series highlights a unique component of emerging contaminant research—everything from tracing their sources to understanding their impacts on aquatic ecosystems to designing new wastewater treatment technologies. Readers also learn about field study designs, quality control methods, and the potential implications of research on industries and regulations.

The series is produced by the Illinois Water Resources Center and Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant. Editions are available in print and online. For print copies, contact Laura Kammin.
