A 21st-century roadmap for biomedical research - Feb 15, 2017
A 21st-century roadmap for biomedical research
JRC scientist contributes to the definition of a 21st-century roadmap for biomedical research which proposes the use of human-specific models and innovative in vitro technologies instead of animals.
JRC hosts the VAC2VAC workshop on validation of non-animal methods for quality control of vaccines - Feb 10, 2017
JRC hosts the VAC2VAC workshop on validation of non-animal methods for quality control of vaccines
The JRC's EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) organised this workshop with VAC2VAC partners from the 30th January to the 1st February 2017 to discuss ways of improving multi-centre validation studies and making use of the data generated for product-specific validation purposes.
How Adverse Outcome Pathways can support computational approaches to predictive toxicology - Feb 03, 2017
How Adverse Outcome Pathways can support computational approaches to predictive toxicology
Scientists from the JRC and eleven collaborating organisations from the EU, Canada and the USA have shared their collective insights on how adverse outcome pathways (AOP) can aid the development and use of computational prediction models for regulatory toxicology.
JRC continues its Good Cell Culture Practice efforts - Jan 30, 2017
JRC continues its Good Cell Culture Practice efforts
JRC scientists - in close collaboration with international organisations – revised the first guidance on Good Cell Culture Practice (GCCP) by expanding it to aspects of quality assurance for in vitro cell culture focusing on the increasingly diverse cell types and culture formats used in research and elsewhere.
Criteria for selection of reference chemicals for the evaluation of alternative methods to assess developmental neurotoxicity - Jan 25, 2017
Criteria for selection of reference chemicals for the evaluation of alternative methods to assess developmental neurotoxicity
In collaboration with international organisations, a JRC scientist defined criteria for the selection of positive/negative control samples to assess developmental neurotoxicity hazard posed by environmental and industrial chemicals.
Revised tracking system for alternative testing methods – the new TSAR now available online - Dec 16, 2016
Revised tracking system for alternative testing methods – the new TSAR now available online
The Joint Research Centre's EU Reference Laboratory for Alternative to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) has entirely revamped its Tracking System for Alternative methods towards Regulatory acceptance (TSAR), recently launched at the Commission’s scientific conference on “Non-animal Approaches-The way Forward” held on 6-7 December in Brussels.
Review of alternatives to the use of vertebrate animals in ecotoxicity testing - Dec 13, 2016
Review of alternatives to the use of vertebrate animals in ecotoxicity testing
The JRC's EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) has contributed to a recently published overview of different approaches that are now available for ecotoxicologists and risk assessors to evaluate potentially hazardous chemicals and minimize the use of vertebrates in ecotoxicity tests.
European Commission Scientific Conference: Non-Animal Approaches - The Way Forward - Dec 13, 2016
European Commission Scientific Conference: Non-Animal Approaches - The Way Forward
On 6-7th December 2016, the European Commission held a scientific conference in Brussels to engage the scientific community and relevant stakeholders in a debate on how to exploit cutting edge advances in biomedical and other research in the development of scientifically valid non-animal approaches (alternatives to animal testing). The event was one of the four actions announced in the European Commission Communication responding to the European Citizens' Initiative "Stop Vivisection".
JRC's EURL ECVAM publishes new Opinions from its Scientific Advisory Committee, ESAC - Dec 01, 2016
JRC's EURL ECVAM publishes new Opinions from its Scientific Advisory Committee, ESAC
The EURL ECVAM's Scientific Advisory Committee (ESAC) Opinions published by the Joint Research Centre's EURL ECVAM (the European Union Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing) are the outcome of the scientific peer review of five validation studies on alternative methods for skin sensitisation, skin irritation and serious eye damage/eye irritation.
Collaborative workshop to explore regulatory use of non-animal approaches in chemical safety assessment - Nov 21, 2016
Collaborative workshop to explore regulatory use of non-animal approaches in chemical safety assessment
On the 9-10 November the JRC's EU Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) hosted a workshop to explore the possible regulatory use of alternative (non-animal) approaches to systemic toxicity that are intended for the hazard and safety assessment of chemicals used in a variety of sectors.
