We plan to develop innovative tools to measure and characterize MNPs and potential contaminants in food, water and air.
We are committed to understanding the effect of MNPs combined with potentially harmful environmental contaminants adhering to their surfaces and finding their way into the human body.
We aim to examine a possible link between MNPs and their role in food allergy and allergic asthma.

What drives and inspires our scientists and how they would like to see the world ten years from now!
The International Journal of Food Contamination recently published a scoping review by Imptox scientists on microplastics in food, their health effects, occurrence, and human exposure.
A group of Imptox scientists from Ghent University published their findings on the effects of mycotoxins on the bioenergetic status of intestinal and liver cells.
