Harini Pechiappan defended her thesis on “Effects of Nano- and Microplastics on Inflammatory Responses in Mactrophages in vitro” yesterday. The censors Aurelia Lewis and Tore Brembu awarded an A, the best grade in the Norwegian University system. Impressive work, great presentation, and happy supervisors!
We just published a new paper entitled “Incubation in Wastewater Reduces the Multigenerational Effects of Microplastics in Daphnia magna.” This is the last paper of Christoph’s PhD project and part of the work we do in PLAWES.
Our brand new LimnoPlast project has a brand new website.
The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM) has published a new report on microplastics. We have co-authored the piece. Download here.
We have published an Open Access book on Freshwater Microplastics: Emerging Environmental Contaminants. Feel free to share and spread the word!
