Om Andi Alijagic
Novel approaches in toxicology of (nano)materials and chemicals
Andi Alijagic is a researcher in toxicology at Örebro University (ORU) in Sweden. He investigates toxicity of nano- and micron-sized particles, and bulk materials of different chemical composition, e.g., metals, plastics, composites. The focus is set on discovery of physicochemical properties that drive toxicity, mechanisms of toxicity, and biomarkers of human exposure to (nano)materials and chemicals. In doing so, he is using advanced in vitro testing strategies including mono- and co-cultures of human cells, high-content screening by Cell Painting, omics, and a number of cell-based assays focusing on inflammation, cell health and function, genotoxicity, and endocrine disruption. He has strong interest in the development of New Approach Methods (NAMs), and together with ORU team, he has initiated application of Cell Painting as an advanced and novel method for nanosafety research.
In the recently granted NANOSIGN project (KK-Stiftelsen, Prospekt 22), he will lead research on discovery of cellular and molecular signatures of nanoparticle exposure in additive manufacturing or industrial 3D printing.
In addition, he is serving as the review editor for Toxicology, Pollution and the Environment in the journal Frontiers in Environmental Science. He is actively involved in the communication of science both to the public at large and the research community.
Andi is involved in teaching both at bachelor and master level in the courses Environmental Toxicology at the School of Science and Technology, and in the course Inflammatory Responses at the School of Medical Sciences at ORU.
