About the Project
"Human Exposure to Aluminium" programme.
Biological availablity of aluminium in infant formulas
Recent research in our group (http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2431/10/63
and http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2431/13/162) has highlighted the high levels of aluminium which are present in infant formulas. The assumption is that these products are contaminated with aluminium since the manufacturers claim that no aluminium is added voluntarily.
In this project a student will investigate the biological availability of aluminium in infant formulas both; (i) in a clinical trial to determine how such products contribute towards the body burden of aluminium in infants and (ii) in benchtop experiments to study aluminium absorption in a model of the gastrointestinal system.
Deadline for applications is Friday May 29th 2015.
