Doctor Kathrin Zeller was 28.8.2020 appointed as Associate Professor in Immunotechnology by the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University.

Her research focuses on in vitro models to investigate human cellular toxicity caused by various stresses, such as chemicals, chemical mixtures and nanoparticles. Currently, her team evaluates the capacity of fungicides commonly applied in agriculture in the EU to cause allergic skin disease, including active ingredients, their combination with additives and commercial formulations. The overall goal is to improve the understanding of molecular mechanisms behind chemical mixture-induced toxicity and to contribute with practical tools to achieve a non-toxic environment.
