ESR8 Human exposure to OPEs and phthalate esters- a PK modelling approach.
At IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute, ESR8 will synthesise knowledge of human exposure to these contaminants and incorporate them into a PK model of human exposure. The work of ESR8 has strong synergies with ER3 (who will provide insights into the human metabolism of OPEs), and ESRs 5 and 6. Moreover, given the potential for trans-dermal uptake of phthalate esters from e.g. cosmetics, ESR8 will examine such uptake using a synthetic skin model approach during a secondment to the University of Birmingham in collaboration with ESR10. This knowledge will improve PK models.
