Review of computational models for the safety assessment of nanomaterials - Oct 02, 2017
Review of computational models for the safety assessment of nanomaterials
JRC scientists have reviewed the current status and potential applicability of computational methods for predicting the properties of engineered nanomaterials, especially in view of EU chemicals legislation (in particular REACH). The outcome of the study revealed that considerable scientific progress has been made, although challenges remain in translating these developments into regulatory practice.
How to assess the safety of nanomaterials with less animal testing? - Feb 05, 2018
How to assess the safety of nanomaterials with less animal testing?
The JRC participated in an expert group of regulators, academics and industry to discuss the way forward in nanotoxicology, concluding that there is a strong potential for use of alternative methods that will impact the reduction, refinement and replacement (3Rs) of animal testing.
Understanding nanomaterial toxicity by leveraging mechanistic information on chemicals - Apr 05, 2017
Understanding nanomaterial toxicity by leveraging mechanistic information on chemicals
JRC scientists carried out a study illustrating how the mechanisms of nanomaterial toxicity can be better understood by exploiting the broader body of mechanistic information on chemicals in general.
