About Arslan Hashmi
I am an ecotoxicologist and have expertise in various in-vitro model systems along with investigating diverse chemical classes responsible for specific mode of actions related effects. I am working with effect-directed analysis (EDA) of marine plastics to detect chemicals sorbed on MPs and NPs as well as plastic additives and investigate their biological effects by using genetically modified in-vitro bioreporter assays. Causative compounds responsible for these effects are screened by using state-of-the-art chemical analytical techniques.
These investigations are part of JPI Ocean project RESPONSE - Towards a Risk-Based Assessment of Microplastic Pollution in Marine Ecosystems. RESPONSE is a European research project that is developing a model that will support the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive in monitoring marine plastic pollution.
