Genotoxicity of nanoparticles: characterisation of the determining physicochemical properties and establishment of an in vitro model of the upper airways applicable to the study of the danger of particles originating from urban/industrial environments.
Environmental nanoparticle pollutant indoor and outdoor air quality tests.
Part 1: Direct toxicity, 2012 –
Influence of the size and surface charge of nanoparticles on their toxicity and their ability to penetrate respiratory mucous membranes.
Part 2: Secondary toxicity, 2013 –
Influence of the size and surface charge of nanoparticles on the modulation of the toxicity of adsorbed xenobiotics and their ability to penetrate respiratory mucous membranes.
Study of the in vitro and in vivo genotoxicity of 14 manufactured nanoparticles (TiO2, SiO2, CNT) aimed at providing the European Union with an in vitro predictive method for genotoxic potential in vivo.
NANoREG is a project co-funded by the European Union within the framework of the 7th research framework programme (FP7) which aims to develop standard operating procedures for regulatory purposes.
