Kleinow's research interests center on mechanistic and applied aspects of
aquatic animal toxicology, physiology and pharmacology. Focus areas include
1) biotransformation and transporter functions as modulators of xenobiotic
bioavailability and excretion; 2) elaboration of basic mechanisms involved
in the disposition of carcinogens, drugs and other xenobiotics in aquatic
species; 3) the food chain transfer and consumption of xenobiotics within
and from the aquatic food chain and 4) dispositional aspects of developmental
