For me, gwTriade is a great network and project, implementing for the first time a comprehensive triad approach with effect-based studies using a biotest battery, a comprehensive chemical analysis, an investigation of the biotic communities using taxomic and eDNA metabarcoding methods, as well as transdisciplinary implementation via socio-ecological methods and early integration by the key decision makers.

Main areas of research

  • Bioanalytical environmental toxicology and green toxicology
  • Water and sediment research
  • Flood events
  • Planetary thinking
  • Development and validation of in vitro-, mechanism-specific toxicity- & -omic assays
  • Development of alternative methods to animal testing
