The Group of Mutagenesis leaded by Professor Marcos was created in 1980 and, since then, it has already participated in 14 EU sponsored projects in the recent years, almost all related with the topic of the human biomonitoring and
One of the recent fields of research included in the group is nanogenotoxicity. Studies in this field included in vitro andin vivo approaches.
