BOOSting excellence in environmental EPIgenetics (EPIBOOST) joins a widening partner and two internationally-leading partners that will steer a solid capacitation strategy towards tackling the challenges to the recently proposed uptake of epigenomics by Environmental Assessment frameworks. Capacitation activities cover for 5 specific objectives. The 1st is to optimize research protocols, enhancing the practical skills and research profile of the Widening partner for the development of excellent Science in the field of environmental epigenetics. The 2nd objective is focused on the seeding of the talent that will sustain the European critical mass at the best world-class standards in the field, through the organization of several training events (advanced courses, summer schools and short courses in scientific meetings) targeting young EU researchers. The 3rd and 4th objectives regard the absolute need of a capacitated science management and administrative support to effectively grow world-class research in the field. The fifth addresses network growing and will be achieved through a systematic strategy for involving international flagship experts in capacitation activities and stakeholders in the project, which will strengthen the Consortium for new research and innovation ventures.

Inter-species single cell lipidomics in environmental toxicology: exploring the frontiers of cell heterogenicity
SCIENTOX aims to study the response of human, embryo zebrafish (Danio rerio) and bacteria cells to OPFRs exposures at single-cell lipidomics level. To fulfill this objective, we will:
1. develop and optimize a single cell lipidomics workflow suitable to human and bacteria cell cultures as well as to disaggregated cells from fish embryo tissues; and
2. perform a cross-species comparison of lipid stress responses to OPFRs exposures.
