Texas - Indiana Virtual STAR Center

University of Houston - University Park

The main objective of the proposed multidisciplinary Texas Indiana Virtual STAR (TIVS) Center is to contribute to a more reliable chemical risk assessment through the development of high throughput in vitro and in silico screening models of developmental toxicity. Specifically, the TIVS Center aims to generate in vitro models of murine embryonic stem cells and zebrafish for developmental toxicity. The data produced from these models will be further exploited to produce predictive in silico models for developmental toxicity on processes that are relevant also for human embryonic development.
