Application for new COST Action on neurotox: ToxBrain

Several members of Modernet worked together on an application for a new COST Action in the recently launched Open Call system.

The deadline for application was 24 March 2015.

The Title of our proposal is ToxBrain and the main aim  is to study the health burden of neurological diseases with a focus on the causative role of environmental and occupational exposure to chemicals (e.g. solvents, metals, pesticides, gasses) and (nano)particles. The main challenge is to integrate research findings and develop instruments to enhance the detection, diagnosis and prevention of neurological, neuropsychological and neurobehavioral effects of neurotoxic occupational or environmental exposure.
