Erica Selin
PhD student in the Molecular Toxicology research group


As a part of Professor Lundqvist's group, my research focuses on applying in vitro methods on food items, food additives and food contact materials. This to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms that chemical pollutants, within the food items or packages, are causing.
