The use of medicines during pregnancy
An article "Medisinbruk hos gravide: Den krevende forskningsformidlingen" about PharmaTox and dissemination of research by Norunn K. Torheim was published on UIO´s website. Emma Escribano Serrano is a new Erasmus student that joined our team and she will be working on the PharmaTox project "Drugs in pregnancy – epigenetic outcomes of exposure to paracetamol in human embryonic stem cells".
Ragnhild Eskeland and Erasmus student Gema Escribano Serrano at the Department of Biosciences. They study human stem cells that can differentiate into neural cells. This is the closest they get to a model of neural development in foetus. They can, for example, look at how drugs like paracetamol affects epigenetic marks in stem cells and neural cells.
