Awards and Achievements


On the occasion of 43th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology (EUROTOX 2006) held in Cavtat (20.-24.09.2006.), Vlatka Filipović Marijić receivedECETOC Scientist Award for the best poster presentation.  

ECETOC (European Centre for Ecotoxicology and Toxicology of Chemicals) advisory team awarded Vlatka Filipović Marijić for her poster presentation entitled “Metal exposure assessment in native fish, Mullus barbatus L., from the Eastern Adriatic Sea” (authors V. Filipović Marijić and B. Raspor). Presented research comprised the results of Vlatka’s Master Degree thesis, which involved metallothionein (biomarker of metal exposure) analysis in liver, kidney and intestine of red mullet (Mullus barbatus L.) in relation to cytosolic metal levels and fish biotic parameters (morphology and age).


At the6th International Conference on Marine Pollution and Ecotoxicology (ICMPE)(Hong Kong, May 31 – June 03, 2010) Elsevier announced50 top cited articles published from 2005 till 2009in their journalMarine Pollution Bulletin.


Among them is the article entitled "Evaluation of the Mytilus galloprovincialis Lam. digestive gland metallothionein as a biomarker in a long-term field study: seasonal and spatial variability" (Marine Pollution Bulletin, 50, 2005: 1303-1313). Main author of this article isDušica Ivanković and co-authors are Jasenka Pavičić, Marijana Erk, Vlatka Filipović Marijić, Biserka Raspor.

The results presented in this article are based on multi-annual monitoring of MTs and metal levels in native populations of mussels from the central part of Eastern Adriatic coast. This study was performed within the scope of the Croatian National Monitoring Programme for the Adriatic Sea (Project “Adriatic”).
