Welcome to the Winter 2019 newsletter from the PATROLS project. In this edition, we review the project's significant advances in its second year and invite you to catch up with the project through key events in 2020.
PATROLS hosted a stakeholder workshop on 12 September 2019 with the aim to showcase and seek stakeholder feedback.
The webinar held on October 21st gave an overview of the current advancement of lung, intestine, and liver 3D models as well as state-of-the art exposure approaches to understand the impact of various nanomaterials.
A short survey has been to ask how if/how training for staff in nanomaterials safety is undertaken and if s any in vitro assessment of materials.
16 expert researchers met in Switzerland to address the latest developments in 3D lung, intestine and skin tissues.
PATROLS was part of the 18 project-strong NanoSafety Cluster exhibition stand at EuroNanoForum, hosted in Bucharest as part of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
New Study Highlights Value of Physiologically Relevant 3D InSight™ Liver Microtissues for Nanomaterial Safety Assessments
A new study, conducted as part of PATROLS, established InSphero 3D InSight™ Multi-Donor Human Liver Microtissues as a valuable nanotoxicology risk assessment tool.
The PATROLS project abstract by Hana Barosova was awarded the Student Research prize at ISAM 2019 (International Society for Aerosols in Medicine) in Montreux, Switzerland.
