Presentation of TKPlate from EFSA – Food safety without animal testing ?

Scientists from EFSA and several leading European research organizations have joined forces to create “TKPlate”. It is an online platform that provides scientists and regulators with a dedicated space and a suite of tools to model and predict the toxicokinetics and toxicity properties of chemicals.

Two EFSA scientists – toxicologist Jean-Lou Dorne and statistician/modeler Jose Cortiñas Abrahantes – are leading this work.

This new platform for modeling and predicting the toxicity of chemicals and their fate in humans and animals marks an important step towards a future where animal testing in the field of food safety will be reduced, or even non-existent.

Biomedical Research Revolution : An EU’s first-ever public database, dedicated exclusively to human biology-based models

The biomedical research landscape is evolving at breakneck speed, ushering in an era of precision, accuracy, and human-centric methodologies.

In recognition of the paramount importance of human-centric research, a consortium will create the EU’s first-ever public database, dedicated exclusively to human biology-based models.

Leading the charge in this transformative phase is the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre ambitious project, which places human biology-based models and methods at the heart of advancements in health research

FRESCI by SCIENCE&STRATEGY provides scientific and management coordination to the consortium developing this project, in a crucial collaboration with several partners : TenWise B.V., Ready2Use srl, AlterTox srl and EcoMole sro.
