The ZOOLOGY: BIODIVERSITY AND TOXICOLOGY group focuses on the impact of toxic compounds and nanoparticles on stem cell behaviour, cancer and developmental processes in different model systems. From an applied perspective, the group developed a screening assay (Neomodels) to detect potential carcinogens based on stem cell dynamics.
The group moreover studies biodiversity in all its aspects. It hosts a well-equipped histological and molecular platform. It has culture rooms, a completely-equipped histology and microscopy lab and facilities to work with toxic compounds.
