ESR10 Exploring the utility of synthetic skin models to evaluate trans-dermal uptake of chemicals from indoor dust.

There are two main characteristics of our time: practicality and environmental protection. So, by creating synthetic skin models, which we will talk about later, humanity wants to have a positive impact on nature, overshadowing the consequences recognized by our gradual technical achievements and misunderstanding of the importance of our ecosystem. For a more detailed review you can buy custom term papers.

At the University of Birmingham, ESR10 will evaluate the use of synthetic skin models to characterise the trans-dermal uptake of contaminants from indoor dust. Such models are widespread in the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industry, but have yet to be explored fully in the context of exposure to environmental contaminants. ESR10 will also undergo a secondment to the University of Reading. During this, they will compare the techniques developed at UB with parallel in vitro approaches to studying trans-dermal uptake under development at the University of Reading by Collins in collaboration with colleagues in the School of Pharmacy.
