Only two weeks to go!

Dear members of MilieuChemTox,

The board of MilieuChemTox, in collaboration with the NWO/TTW project 'Exposure, hazard and risk of PFAS in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems', is pleased to invite you to the second edition of their symposium on PFAS.

Date: 6 October 2023, from 09:00h to17:30h

Location: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), De Boelelaan 1108, Amsterdam
O|2 building, Auditorium

    Sanne Brekelmans (The Water Laboratory Haarlem)
  • Dynamics of PFAS in the rivers Meuse and Rhine
    Tessa Pronk (KWR)
  • Bioturbation affects bioaccumulation of PFAS: uptake from sediments by a rooting macrophyte and a benthic invertebrate
    Ioanna Gkika (UvA)
  • Macroinvertebrate community responses to PFAS pollution: identification of threshold body burdens
    Cara Byns (Antwerp University)
  • The contribution of PFAS to thyroid hormone-displacing activity in Dutch waters: A comparison between two in vitro bioassays with chemical analysis
    Jaimy de Schepper (The Water Laboratory Haarlem)
  • Chronic toxicity of PFOS to aquatic macroinvertebrates
    Ayesha Siddiqa (Wageningen University)
  • Multigeneration toxicity of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) to Daphnia magna and Folsomia candida
