MAASTRICHT, October 2, 2013 – Maastricht UMC+ is coordinating a major European project to make it possible to efficiently investigate the health impact of chemical substances on the heart and liver. The ultimate aim is to develop computer models that can predict the effects of chemicals – in medication, cosmetics and other products – on the human body more precisely than current tests using laboratory animals. The EU is providing twelve million euros for the HeCaToS project. Jos Kleinjans, Professor of Environmental Health Science at Maastricht UMC+’s Department of Toxicogenomics is coordinating the international EU project.
