gene expression analysis for predicting organ toxicity in man. The objective
of the project will be to identify and validate molecular toxicology tools
for use in drug discovery and drug development. The project will focus on
various in vitro methodologies and on in vivo model systems. Follow-up
experiments to confirm or reject mechanistic hypothesis will be an important
part of the work.
