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.
