The training school on The 3 R´s in amphibian ecotoxicology at the University of Aveiro
March 23, 2022
On March 22 and 23, the training school on The 3 R's in Amphibian ecotoxicology was held at the University of Aveiro. During these two days, 25 participants from 10 different countries and with different professional backgrounds attended this training activity in person and online. The TS focused on theoretical and practical aspects of alternative non-animal methods that can be used in the risk assessment of chemicals to amphibians, in particular the use of predictive models and in vitro testing with cell lines. It also addressed the development of ecotoxicity tests that address more humane endpoints, particularly by evaluating the ability of organisms to avoid contaminants.
