About Andi Alijagic

Andi Alijagic obtained his PhD degree at the Paris-Lodron-Unversität Salzburg (Austria) in 2020. The major part of the PhD research he has performed at the Italian National Research Council as the Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellow. His research focuses on the development and use of different in vitro models for the advanced safety assessment of nanomaterials. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher and project coordinator in the NanoSafety Project at the Örebro University. His work takes 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 academic-industrial consortium to monitor the safety of nanoparticles in the additive manufacturing or industrial 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.
