Skin Sensitisation

In 2023, the Science Consortium provided travel awards for researchers to attend a hands-on workshop, organised by Altertox Academy and acCELLerate, on novel approaches to skin sensitisation testing.

In 2012, the Science Consortium coordinated financial support provided by PETA Foundation UK and PETA Germany for the validation of a non-animal method to assess skin sensitisation. The SenCeeTox® skin sensitisation assay replaces dermal sensitisation testing in guinea pigs or mice, and can provide information on potency.
