Microplastics: Is it harmful to our bodies and how can we study the possible health threats?

Speaker:
Prof. dr. ir. Hans Bouwmeester

Curriculum Vitae:
My name is Hans Bouwmeester. I’m working as associate professor at the division of toxicology of Wageningen University. I’m trained as biologist and did my PhD at Utrecht Medical Center on to study the neuronal development in the postnatal brain of rodents. Upon returning to Wageningen I studied the potential hazards of engineered nanoparticles for human health. I focus on the oral route of exposure. For this we are developing advanced in vitro models for the human intestine like gut-on-a-chip models.
