Over the past ten years, CRACK IT Challenges has spearheaded the development of innovative 3Rs technologies through a growing portfolio of products and services that deliver improved scientific data, more predictive models and reduce the reliance on animals. From non-invasive home cage monitoring and human relevant stem cell models to in silico platforms, approaches developed through CRACK IT are delivering real world scientific and 3Rs benefits across multiple industry sectors and in basic research.
2021 Challenge launch
This webinar will launch the 2021 CRACK IT Challenge 41: SAFE - Innovative Safety Assessment of Fish adverse Effects.
Environmental risk assessment evaluates the likelihood that the environment may be impacted by exposure to one or more chemical stressors and is assessed across three trophic levels, with fish used as the vertebrate species when in vivo testing is required. This Challenge aims to develop a suite of innovative, scalable bioassays for key adverse outcome pathways to replace in vivo fish studies in chemical safety screening and regulatory environmental risk assessment.
This is a two Phase Challenge sponsored by Bayer AG, AstraZeneca and Unilever and co-funded by DEFRA and the Environment Agency. Further information about this Challenge can be found on the NC3Rs Innovation Platform.
This webinar will give you an opportunity to learn more about the competition, ask the Sponsors questions and find out how to submit a competitive application.
