Guided educational tour - posters
The Guided Educational Tour was one of the highlights of the SEURAT-1 symposium and a unique opportunity to learn about alternative safety assessment methods explained in layman’s terms. The Guided Educational Tour took the audience through a typical case where the safety of a chemical ingredient is assessed using non-animal test methods and tools that were developed in SEURAT-1.
You can download the Guided Tour booklet here.
