Owner/Developer: Toxicology, Philippe Vanparys at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven)
As Guest Professor at the Catholic University of Leuven (KULeuven), I give a this course for Master students Indusrial Enginieers (Biochemistry). For each of the toxicological areas where there are alternatives for animal tests available, the alternative tests are explained to the students. Alternatives to animal testing takes a serious part of the toxicology course which takes 24 hours. Teaching is more practical oriented instead of academic with the purpose what students later have to submit on studies for registration of products.
