The research performed in EDC-MixRisk helps to expand our knowledge on mixtures of endocrine disrupting chemicals. Meet our EDC-MixRisk scientists and hear their story on what they are doing and why it matters. This time in line is Carl-Gustaf Bornehag who is professor in Public Health Sciences and head of Public Health Sciences at Karlstad […]

EDC-MixRisk project will organize a session “Integrating epidemiology and experimental toxicology to understand the risk of endocrine disrupting chemical mixtures on children” at the EUROTOX 2018 Congress which takes place in Brussels, 2-5 September 2018. Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and potential EDCs are found in various materials such as personal care products, pesticides, metals, additives […]

EDC-MixRisk will organize its Steering Committee meeting in Milan, Italy, 12-13 December 2017. The meeting will be hosted by the Italian project partner, European Institute of Oncology (IEO), and it will gather all Principal Investigators of the project to discuss the overall progress and potential challenges. Particularly, the purpose of the meeting is to discuss […]

Meet our EDC-MixRisk scientists working behind the scenes and learn more about their work. This time Maria Jönsson is in the spotlight. She is an assistant professor, group leader and PI in the Uppsala University, Environmental Toxicology unit. The primary objective of her research group is to examine developmental effects of chemicals in vertebrates in […]

PhD student Iuliia Savchuk, who is involved in the EDC-MixRisk project, defended her thesis 13 October 2017 in Astrid Lindgren´s Children Hospital, Stockholm. The title of her thesis is “Diverse effects of endocrine-disruptive chemicals on Leydig and adrenocortical cell steroidogenesis in humans and rodents”. The aim of the thesis was to examine the impact of […]

We are exposed to multiple chemicals that make their way into the environment through several routes. Hormonal disruptive effects of many of these chemicals have been reported in experimental and/or epidemiological studies. Most of these disruptive effects have, however, been reported as an individual chemical rather than a mixture. Research group led by Prof. Barbara […]
