Short CV: Dr. Cinta Porte (h-index=50, 164 publications, 5470 citations) is specialized in the combined use of biochemical and chemical tools to evaluate the impact of pollution and human pressure on aquatic ecosystems, with special attention to endocrine disrupters. Her current research interests include the development and application of alternative in-vitro methods based on the use of fish and human cell lines or isolated subcellular fractions in order to reduce the use of experimental organisms. These techniques have been applied to evaluate the toxicity of drugs, synthetic musks, plasticizers and environmental samples, as well as in studies of endocrine disruption. The application of lipidomics analysis to these in-vitro systems constitutes a new research line, whose objective is to develop new biomarkers of metabolic disturbance.
