About Andi Alijagic

Andi Alijagic obtained his PhD degree at the Paris-Lodron-Unversität Salzburg (Austria) in 2020. His research focuses on the development and use of in vitro models for the safety assessment of nanomaterials. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Nanosafety Project at the Örebro University. His work will take place at the Man-Technology-Environment research centre (MTM) and Inflammatory Response and Infection Susceptibility Centre (iRiSC).

The main aim of the Nanosafety Project is the development of a multidisciplinary consortium to monitor the safety of micro and nanoparticles in the additive manufacturing industry (3D-printing). More precisely, the project is divided in the part that maps and tracks exposure and characterizes particles, the part that assesses toxicity and biological effects of the particles in vitro, and the part that will evaluate long-term exposure risks in the workers.
