Stichting Dienst Landbouwkundig Onderzoek (DLO)

 The Netherlands

Stichting Dienst Landbouwkundig Onderzoek (DLO) is part of the Wageningen University and Research centre. DLO has a long track record for a combination of applied and strategic research amongst others in the fields of food safety, ecology, soil and land use.

Within DLO two units will be involved in Marina: RIKILT- Institute of Food Safety and Alterra. The study of the fate and (eco) toxicity of ENM is a rapidly growing research theme for DLO.RIKILT focuses on research questions related to human risks of ENM and Alterra on environmental risks. We have high quality testing facilities and our strength lies in the versatility and interdisciplinary nature of our analytical expertise and equipment, (nano)toxicology, X-omics, and bioinformatics approaches. We are involved in many research projects on nanotoxicology, both at a national and international (NanoImpactNet, Qnano) level and coordinate the FP 7 project NanoLyse. We contribute to MARINA with experimental research on environmental exposure, human toxicity and systems biology.
