Syarifatun Nisa Nurdhy
Syarifatun Nisa Nurdhy attended Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (ECT+) in Liege University, Belgium and Universidad del Pais Vasco (UPV/EHU), Spain. During the completion of her master degree, she did her master thesis in Université de Reims, France, in a cooperation project with Yves Rocher, a French cosmetic manufacturer, to study the sub-lethal effects of UV filter molecules on freshwater microalgae C. vulgaris and Common Carp Brain (CCB) fish cell line.
Now Nisa is joining the QTOX project funded by the European Union under Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), as DC5, in the Department of Cell Toxicology at the UFZ, where she will work on "Quantitative In Vitro to In Vivo Extrapolation" (QIVIVE) project. Her research will predict different contaminants effects on different level organisms (algal, invertebrate and vertebrate) from in-vitro bioassay results, mainly using RTgill-W1 fish cell line with toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics (TKTD) approach. Apart from that, they also investigate if current available methods on employing fish cell line for in-vitro bioassay can be improved.
