In an article published on June 18, 2015 the Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry (ACES) at Stockholm University announced their participation in a new four-year inter-disciplinary EU project called EDC-MixRisk. The project will study the effects of mixtures of endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in children and focus on growth and metabolism, neurodevelopment, and sexual development. EDC-MixRisk is coordinated by the Swedish Toxicology Sciences Research Center (Swetox) under the lead of Åke Bergman and is a collaboration of 12 universities in Sweden, France, Germany, Greece, Finland, Italy, and the U.S. “With this research we can support policy development in the EU to improve the health of future generations,” stated Christina Rudén, who is leading the regulatory aspect of the project.
