Title of thesis: SJL-L-selecting deficient mice develop experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis
Keywords: Toxicity - of nanomaterials;
Nanomaterials - metallic and polymeric, present in consumer products, in biomedical applications, or generated by materials degradation;
In vitro techniques - cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, carcinogenicity testing, primary and established cell lines, co-cultures and 3D models, cytokines, oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory markers;
Epigenetics - DNA methylation;
Physico-chemical properties - behaviour (e;g; size, agglomeration/aggregation, ionic release) of nanomaterials in aqueous basal and complex solutions, in biological fluids, in their native status;
Microscopy - use of optical, fluorescence and electron microscopes.
Scientific Project: I would like to develop a project on the epigenetic and proteomic effects of nanomaterials (e.g. TiO2 and cement particles) that are generated by t...
