WWU will contribute to WP9, toxicology. The department has a broad experience in the development and application of in vitro testing methods for nanoparticles. WWU will integrate the existing test matrix of cell line sets and assay sets to the evaluation of test strategies. Furthermore WWU will contribute to the development of HTS systems based on existing collaborations with the JRC, Ispra.
