Non-Animal Research Group Offers Reward For AOP Development

« Awards for contributions to wiki website
The Peta International Science Consortium (PISC) is offering up to three cash awards, totalling €7,000, to scientists who contribute to public knowledge of adverse outcome pathways (AOPs).

AOPs describe the cause and effect chains through which chemicals bring about adverse health impacts. They are “the wave of the future in determining toxicity in humans without using animals”, the non-animal research group believes.
The award process was launched at the 51st Annual Eurotox Congress held in Porto, Portugal, on 13-16 September.

The awards will be made to new contributors, who add to existing entries in the AOP Wiki website. Winners will be selected, based on the number and merit of their contributions, added between 15 September 2015 and 15 March 2016.
The website is OECD-sponsored and run with the cooperation of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and the US EPA. »
