Life   MEDETOX

IEM is the coordinator of the MEDETOX project. This pure Czech project has been chosen for support within community program LIFE+ Environment in discerning competition by European Commission. This project is focused on investigation of exhaust gas emissions of diesel engines during real urban driving, including combustion generated nanoparticles.

Aim of this project is to investigate toxicity of diesel engine exhaust emissions during real urban driving with detailed focus on situation on orbital road of Prague.

MSMT COST

IEM is the grant holder of the NANOSTOX project. Major aim of this project is gaining of the relevant models to predict the cytotoxicity of selected well characterized nanomaterials (NM) using mathematical modelling and standardized protocols for cytotoxicity measurement in human lung cell lines A549 and BEAS-2B. The project has been solved in close cooperation with the European partners participating in the COST Action TD 1204 MODENA.
