This Network promotes research cooperation in four areas:1) What types of particles are being produced in bulk, which of them present likelihood for large-scale human exposure and how can unwanted exposures be prevented? 2) How are particles taken up, translocated and distributed in cells, organs, and compartments? 3) How do particles interact with cells and organs? 4) How are the interactions manifested in animals and humans? This network provides an opportunity to researchers to exchange research ideas, to identify knowledge gaps and to find partners for future research collaborations.
