This project will establish an in vitro test for the influences of oil/dispersed oil and breakdown products on long-term health; guiding safer, more effective oil spill contingency plans. The in vitro tests established will be amenable to high throughput modification and go beyond acute cytotoxicity testing to predict life-long consequences of oil/dispersant on different higher life forms in the environment.
