TecnATox is one of the partners of the new Horizon2020 project EUROMIX, coordinated by the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). For the next 4 years, participants from 22 institutions and 5 associated partners, including the World Health Organization and the US Environmental Protection Agency, will be jointly evaluating the combined exposure to mixtures of multiple food‐related toxic substances and their combined risks, from different perspectives. The project is ultimately aimed at developing an experimentally verified, tiered strategy for the risk assessment of mixtures of multiple chemicals derived from multiple sources across different life stages.
Researchers from three different areas of TecnATox (Experimental toxicology, Human health risk assessment, and Food toxicology) will be fully involved in the development of the project, which includes PBPK modeling, in vivo experimental studies, validation with human data, total diet studies, and health risk assessment. In May 20-21, the kick-off meeting of EUROMIX took place at the Headquarters of RIVM (Utrecht, The Netherlands).
The Director of TecnATox, Professor Jose L. Domingo, was included on the list (position #6) of the 30 most frequently cited European authors within the topic Toxicology as the magazine LabTimes compiled in its last update (#1, 2015). The list, which is referred to articles published between 2005 and 2011, is leaded by Prof. Mark T.D. Cronin, from the University of Liverpool (UK). England is the European country with more citations, while Spain occupies the 6th place. In fact, Prof. Domingo is the only Spanish researcher among the top-30 toxicologists across Europe. Link. Link
Prof. José L. Domingo received the award: Reconeixement Mare Terra (Mother Earth Recognition), the event was held on Friday 5th June, at 8:00 p.m., at Metropol Theatre in Tarragona.
