Impact/Purpose:

Presentation at 3rd Annual STAR Organotypic Culture Models (OCM) for Predictive Toxicology Research Centers Progress Review in RTP, NC May 2018

Description:

Chemical regulation under the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act of 2016 requires affirmation of ‘low’ and ‘high’ priority substances based on unreasonable risk to vulnerable subpopulations and lifestages. New approach methods (NAMs) based on in vitro data and in silico models can test the majority of chemicals in commerce within a decade but interpretation remains a challenge, especially for complex processes such as developmental toxicity and cancer. OCM platforms (eg, biomimetic embryo) in parallel with ABM platforms (eg, virtual embryo) can work together seamlessly in translating HTS data through cellular networks to predicted phenotype.
