EFSA Call: AOP development and transcriptomics for risk assessment Featured

Applicants are invited to submit project proposals addressing missing key elements to implement New Approach Methodologies (NAMs, new non-animal method approaches) in EFSA's scientific assessment process. The aim is to use this to improve decision-making in the food and feed sectors.

The proposed case studies are expected to enable the integration of mechanism-based data while reducing the need for animal testing. They should have the potential to improve the speed, precision, and predictability of chemical risk assessment related to food safety.

The following topics are available for selection:
Lot 1: Development of AOPs/AOP networks
Lot 2: NAM transcriptomics for toxicology-specific pathway analysis to predict target organ toxicity

Deadline: September 26, 2022, 11:59 pm (CEST)
