Novel testing methods for metabolism-disrupting chemicals
Metabolism-disrupting chemicals (MDCs) are natural and anthropogenic chemicals that disrupt the metabolism and ultimately result in obesity and diabetes. The EU-funded GOLIATH project aims to develop an integrated approach for testing and assessing MDCs. Researchers will focus on the main cellular targets of metabolic disruption and develop predictive models as well as toxicity screening assays. Combined with omics data, these tools will help decipher the endocrine mode of action and the adverse effects of MDCs on human health. The GOLIATH test methods have the potential to be exploited for regulatory use, leading to much anticipated guidelines.
