Is it possible to define toxic substances without animal testing?

Last changed: 11 June 2021

The goal of this project is to develop a new method where the effects of toxic chemicals on the early embryonic development can be assessed without experimental animals. It may be possible to predict effects that are noticed later in life already in the early embryo by looking at how genes are expressed when exposed to toxic chemicals.
