Prof. Dr. Michaela Aufderheide


This News Report presents the screening method with the modular exposure unit, that can also help to reduce the number of experimental animals used. The research shows that in-vitro models are also suitable for future toxicologic investigations of gases and complex gas/particle mixtures as they actually occur in the environment. One advantage of these methods is the usage of human cells and tissues for screening studies.
