The RedPol Project at SETAC 2022

Two members of the RedPol project will participate in the SETAC EUROPE 32nd Annual Meeting, taking place in Copenhaguen on from the 15 to the 19 May 2022.

As an active member of the Université Le Havre Normandie, Laboratoire Sebio, Thomas Knigge will present the work carried out under RedPol, on the subject of “Physiological colour changes in cuttlefish skin explants as an innovative tool for contaminant risk assessment”. On her side, Tiphaine Monsinjon will present the “In vitro evaluation of potential estrogenic compounds on estrogen receptors of European sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax L”

SETAC, the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, was founded in 1979 to provide a forum for individuals and institutions to discuss issues related to education, research and development, the environment and the manufacture of chemicals. Today, SETAC annual meeting brings together 5,300 professionals working in the fields of chemistry, toxicology, biology, and ecology. It has three main objectives: to support the development of practices for the protection of ecosystems, to encourage exchanges between environmental scientists, and to provide a forum for communication between professionals, governments, universities, and companies, around human well-being.

This year’s theme is “Towards a Low Pollution Society”, which is part of a world where environmental issues are becoming increasingly important and is linked to the RedPol Project as both aim to raise awareness of environmental issues. As such, SETAC is an opportunity for the members of the RedPol Project to exchange with other professionals on environmental and chemical issues and to show the progress of their research.
