Advances in Nanomaterial Human and Environmental Hazard Assessment Methods
PATROLS is an international project aimed at providing an innovative and effective set of laboratory techniques and computational tools to more reliably predict potential human and environmental hazards resulting from engineered nanomaterial (ENM) exposures. These tools will minimise the necessity of animal testing and will support future categorisation of ENMs in order to support safety frameworks. This workshop will showcase a selection from the PATROLS toolbox, spanning nanomaterial characterisation in complex matrices; 3D human lung, liver and gastrointestinal tract models for hazard evaluation; computational toxicology and innovative methods for safety assessment in ecologically relevant test systems.
