Commission launches a new tool to report cancer burden statistics and trends across Europe
Dec 14 2018

Scientists from the JRC and WHO's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released the latest 2018 estimates on the burden of cancer in Europe. Cancer incidence and mortality indicators have been computed for 40 European countries on 34 types of cancer as well as for all cancer sites combined. These estimates are the joint outcome of a collaborative exercise led by IARC, in collaboration with JRC, the European Network of Cancer Registries and the International Association of Cancer Registries.

Hydrophobicity of nanoparticles
Dec 14 2018

JRC scientists developed a quantitative method for measuring the surface energy and hydrophobicity of nanomaterials, as the knowledge about hydrophobicity is important when assessing potential risks of chemicals.

Hydrophobicity is an important parameter to determine for the risk assessment of chemicals and in particular of nanomaterials.

Why?

Because hydrophobicity plays a critical role in various biological processes such as:
