Project Impact

PATROLS sets out to:

Produce realistic test systems for nanosafety evaluation including:

  • 3D human liver, gut and lung cell culture models
  • Advanced Ecological test systems relevant to a range of species or organisms

Create robust computational models for hazard prediction:

  • Development of tools for predictive risk modelling providing a rapid and cost effective approach for assessing engineered nano material safety

Develop test method guidance to support risk assessment frameworks:

  • To provide input into ongoing regulatory nanosafety policy development.

Support the reduction of animal testing in nanosafety:

  • The cutting-edge, physiologically relevant, test systems produced through PATROLS will serve to reduce and replace the current animal test methods
