Computational modelling of estrogen active substances: results of a large-scale international research project

News details
Nov 16, 2016

The JRC contributed to a large-scale modelling project led by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that demonstrated the usefulness of computational models in screening thousands of environmental chemicals for their ability to bind to the estrogen receptor. Chemicals that bind to the estrogen receptor may interfere with the biological effects of the natural hormone estrogen, potentially leading to adverse effects on both humans and wildlife.
