Imptox workshop on the nexus between MNPs, allergies, toxicology & environmental factors

Hybrid workshop on March 11th, 2024 will explore critical insights in the field of microplastics and human health; registration open for both in-person and virtual participation

The CUSP member project IMPTOX is inviting interested stakeholders to its forthcoming public workshop: “Micro- and Nanoplastics in Focus: Bridging Allergic Disease, Toxicology, and Environmental Factors” The event will bring together leading scientists to discuss the pressing issues surrounding micro- and nanoplastic pollution. The workshop promises to offer valuable insights into the intersection of allergic disease, toxicology, and environmental health.

Set against the academic backdrop of the Catholic University of Croatia in Zagreb, the conference is scheduled for the morning of Monday, March 11th, 2024 from 9.00 (8.30 in-person registration) to 12.30 CET. To accommodate a global audience, the workshop will adopt a hybrid format, accessible in person and broadcast via Zoom.

The meeting will be opened by IMPTOX Project Coordinator, Tanja Ćirković Veličković, from the University of Belgrade’s Faculty of Chemistry. The session will feature a series of panel discussions chaired by experts in the field, including a focus on the effects of micro- and nanoplastics on the development of allergic disease and the specific challenges presented by MNPs in pediatric asthma.

The full agenda promises a robust exchange of ideas and the latest findings in MNP toxicology, risk assessment, and the broader implications for human health and ecosystems. MNPs in indoor air pollution and their interaction with microbes in marine environments will be further points of interest. The workshop will be a significant event for researchers and practitioners in the field, offering a platform to connect, exchange knowledge, and collaboratively seek solutions to some of the most challenging health and environmental issues of our time.

Interested participants are invited to join us for a dynamic and interdisciplinary exploration of how MNPs are reshaping our understanding of allergic disease and toxicology.

Registration for in-person participation and for online participation are both open.
