SCAHT as a hosting partner for international students
In September, SCAHT will be hosting a group of four international students from the US Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
The students are evaluating what is required for approval of alternative test methods to animal experimentation, with the focus on nanomaterial safety assessment. As part of their stay, they will meet research organisations, industry and regulatory bodies in Switzerland, to conduct more research before they finalise their reports. Prof. Barbara Rothen-Rutishauser, Co-Chair BioNanomaterials from the Adolphe Merkle Institute, Université de Fribourg, is coordinating the students' activities.
