INT: Request for proposal for hazard assessment of inhaled nanotubes

The PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. (PISC) re­cently organized an international workshop that was held at the US EPA headquarters in Washington, DC, on February 24-25, 2015. The workshop included experts from different sectors and disciplines to discuss the technical details for the development of an in vitro test to predict the development of pulmonary fi­brosis in cells co-cultured at the air-liquid interface following exposure to aerosolized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWC­NTs). During the workshop, experts made recommendations on cell types, exposure systems, endpoints and dosimetry consid­erations required to develop the in vitro model for hazard iden­tification of MWCNTs. The next step is the development and preliminary assessment of the reliability and relevance of this in vitro test method, and PISC will fund this research.

Deadline: May 29, 2015.
