|Details on the topic or technology covered:||
-3Rs principles and the international guiding principles for biomedical research involving animals (ICLAS/CIOMS) and OIE recommendations on laboratory animal welfare;
-new models (e.g., in silico, in vitro and organs-on-a-chip), current state-of-the-art in the EU, the
paradigm shift in toxicology (e.g., adverse outcome pathways), zebrafish embryo toxicity test as a low-cost but valuable model for academic research purposes;
-“3D models: Reconstructed Human Epidermis and Skin,” - an overview of the regulatory
context, the concept of alternative methods and how to validate them;
