Role in the UFIREG project:

Research in the Department of Genetic ecotoxicology concentrates mostly on the effects of air pollution on genetic material, on the mechanisms of changes induced by environmental factors as well as modeling the relationships between individual factors (e. g. air pollution vs. life style), and the genetic damage caused by genotoxic and carcinogenic compounds. The research is organized in several levels: Model studies on human cell cultures; molecular-epidemiological studies on model populations using biomarkers of exposure, effect and susceptibility; in reproductive epidemiology the effect of the environment on pregnancy; the effect of air pollution on upper respiratory diseases in children and the modulatory effects of genetic polymorphisms on childhood morbidity. In the UFIREG project we will analyze data on hospitalizations (on a daily bases) of patients in Prague to look for association of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases with concentration of ultrafine particles measured by the Czech Institute of Hydrometeorology in Prague. We will also collect data on daily mortality.
