Thesis title: "Production, fluorescence and radioisotope labelling of microplastics"

Thesis outline: This doctoral project aims at establishing a robust synthesis and a quality control procedure of various polymer micro- and nanoparticles labeled with radioisotopes and or fluorescent dyes to determine their in-vitro and in-vivo pharmacokinetics and -dynamics. This thesis is part of an FFG funded MicroOne project, which aims at determining potential health effects of micro- and nanoplastics in humans.

Funding: This project is part of "microONE - Microplastic Particles: A Hazard for Human Health?" microONE is a research project led by CBmed, funded as a COMET module by the FFG and is a reference project within the "Action Plan Microplastics 2022-2025" of the Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology in Austria.
