Mrs. Grace Lin

PhD student at AIT (involved in the project in 2020-2021)

Grace has already established in vitro models of the oral mucosal epithelium as well as of salivary gland epithelia and is investigating the effects of the microenvironment in order to arrive at more complex and in vivo-like in vitro models. Within the project, she will learn how to extract compounds from test materials, how to analyse and describe them chemically and apply to the in vitro models for toxicity testing as an important application of her established models.
