B14-RIFM: Skin Sensitisation – Chemical Applicability Domain of the Local Lymph Node Assay (LLNA)

Since the publication of the OECD AOP for skin sensitisation in 2012, there have been even greater efforts to anchor the development and evaluation of new in vitro and in chemico assays to key events within the AOP. Much of […]

LRI AWARD 2010: In Quest of new fingerprints of exposure to VOC from consumer products

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are ubiquitous in indoor air and their origin is a plethora of various emission sources including building related materials, furniture, equipment and consumer and household related products. Currently, there is international recognition of the contribution of […]

LRI AWARD 2013: Environmental programming of respiratory allergy in childhood: the applicability of saliva to study the effect of environmental exposures on DNA methylation

Environmental exposures during fetal and early life may contribute to complex disease later in life such as allergic diseases (AD), neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. The underlying mechanisms are still undiscovered, but changes in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression (such […]

ECO11-UNEW: Towards rationally designed hazard, risk and persistency assessment: Putting the “bio” back into biodegradability tests

The objectives of this project are as follows: Objective 1a.  Determine the extent and variation in microbial diversity of environmental sources used in biodegradation studies i.e. activated sludge, fresh-, estuarine- and marine-waters. Objective 1b.  Examine the relationship between microbial diversity, […]

ECO26-RAD: Adapt SimpleTreat for simulating behavior of chemical substances during industrial sewage treatment

REACH Guidance for Chemical Safety Assessment makes use of mathematical simulation of the retention of chemical substances during waste water treatment. REACH R-16 describes the use of the model SimpleTreat, developed by Struijs and co-workers at RIVM, which simulates the […]

ECO22-IRAS: Advancing the use of passive sampling in risk assessment and management of contaminated sediments: an inter-laboratory comparison study on measurements of freely dissolved (bioavailable) concentrations using different passive sampling formats

The main objective of this study is to map the state of the art in passive sampling sediments and to investigate which measures we can take to reduce any inter-method and -laboratory variation, in order to increase confidence in the […]

Q3-UMA: Sound Science: Selective citation in science based decision-making

The European Chemical Industry Council has provided funding to Maastricht University to start a research project on Research Integrity by exploring one of the most suspected contributors to Questionable Research Practices: Selective Citation. It is generally accepted that scientific papers […]

EEM9.3-IC: Linking LRI AMBIT Chemoinformatic system with the IUCLID Substance database to Support Read-across of Substance endpoint data and Category formation

A major hurdle in using chemoinformatic systems is the lack of easily accessible data on substance identity including structures and composition e.g. constituents, impurities and additives as well as high quality, detailed endpoint data of chemical substances. This project is […]

AIMT4-UM: DECO2: Moving from DECO towards OECD

The aim of this project is to establish a framework for tools usable in integrated approaches. For this, efforts in our previous DECO project (CEFIC-LRI AIMT3 grant) will be advanced. DECO focused on the prediction of in vivo repeated dose […]

C3-ED: A comprehensive Epigenomic profile of liver tissue from Rat and Mouse

This project will apply a comprehensive strategy to characterise and curate genome wide methylomes in liver tissues from rats and mouse. This will involve correlation of the profiles generated with public data sets for RNA expression (transcriptomics) and histone modification profiles […]
