The ISR offers 2 master theses in the context of current international research in the field of nano- and microplastics.

The “cycle” of plastics released by humans seems to be closed: plastic particles come back to us as contaminants of air, water and food. In addition, they themselves are usually contaminated with harmful chemicals and microorganisms. The work to be commissioned will focus on the possible sources of human exposure to these particles and their toxicity, in order to develop a tool to compare the risks of using plastics in products.
