The MISSE project
MiSSE addresses both the exposure to cats and to small children by the analysis of dust samples, and establishing the exposure pathway by analysis of cat serum.
The project started as a consequence from that cats has been shown to be good sentinels for human exposure and could help to better assess the chemical exposure small kids have in our homes.

Final Conference 2018
“Mixture assessment of endocrine disrupting compounds” 2012-2018.
Thursday 23 August 2018, 9:30-16:30, Tändstickspalatset, Kreugersalen, Stockholm
The project has reached its final year and it is time for us to report on our findings regarding indoor exposure to endocrine disruptors and what possible implications that could have to human health. Over the day, we will present the outcome from our in silico studies, chemical analysis, bioassay testing and the evaluation of exposure to mixtures.
