  • Understand the state of the science in animal alternatives with respect to acute and chronic testing
  • Understand the landscape for future animal alternative needs
  • Develop the basis for collaborative progress by all stakeholders
  • Consider how animal alternatives in environmental science will impact risk assessment

Activities

Several members of the IG collaborated over a very useful focus article that was published in ET&C on animal alternatives that may be of interest -Check it out: “Alternative approaches to vertebrate ecotoxicity tests in the 21st century: A review of developments over the last 2 decades and current status “ (DOI: 10.1002/etc.3603).
