New European H2020 research project
The influence of endocrine disruptors on the male and female thyroid gland. The new European collaborative project SCREENED aims to develop three-dimensional (3D) cell-based in vitro tests to better characterize the effects of endocrine disruptors on thyroid functions. This method will overcome the limitations of existing tests, being more sensitive, at low doses of exposure to chemicals, and enabling the prediction of their toxicity on human health in a sex-specific manner. Sabine Costagliola Lab at IRIBHM is the Belgian partner of this ambitious and innovative project.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 825745.
