SEURAT-1 2015 Annual Meeting – Executive Summary

To advance research in the field of alternative testing methods for long-term systemic toxicity, the European Commission and the European trade association Cosmetics Europe have jointly launched in January 2011 the Research Initiative SEURAT-1 (Safety Evaluation Ultimately Replacing Animal Testing).

This initiative with six research projects as building blocks pursues the common strategy “towards the replacement of current repeated dose systemic toxicity testing in human safety assessment”.  In January 2015, scientist from the six research projects came together in Barcelona to present and discuss latest achievements of the initiative. An Executive Summary highlighting the major results of the 5th SEURAT-1 Annual Meeting is now available at the SEURAT-1 website.
