Towards alternatives to animal testing and research !
Altertox in a nutshell
Focused on alternatives to animal testing in toxicology and 3Rs, Altertox vision is to MAKE people BETTER scientists. Our expertise in training and congress organisation, in public affairs and our network, including the best experts, allow us to support our mission of developing optimal use of alternatives to animal testing.
Based on its strong expertise in in vitro toxicology, Altertox is also the right partner for guidance and advice on alternative method development and consolidation.
What do nematodes, zooplanktons, clawed frogs, fruit flies, zebrafishes and humans have in common? Well, they are all part of the EU-funded project PrecisionTox, and no, this is not the beginning of a very bizarre joke. TOXstreams next episode will tell you the story of the researchers that are combining non-traditional test species with molecular and computational methods to better protect our society from toxic chemicals. Sounds Interesting? Then join Matteo on Wednesday 14th of December at 8.00 PM, and get to know Prof. John Colbourne, the project’s coordinator, Dr Gaëlle Hayot, Christina Cramer von Clausbruch and the PrecisionTox project. See you there!

ASPIS Open Symposium - towards animal-free chemical risk assessment
As Europe awaits crucial revisions of the European Union (EU) legal framework on chemicals management, ASPIS partners, a science for societal change cluster aiming to better assess the hazards of chemicals to human health and the environment without the use of animal testing, met in Sitges-Barcelona on 24-25 November, to discuss how to translate responsible innovation into actions for a sustainable chemicals industry and a healthy environment.
