Virtual Human Platform for Safety Assessment

The mission of the Virtual Human Platform is to improve the prediction of the potential harmful effects of chemicals and pharmaceuticals based on a holistic, interdisciplinary definition of human health by developing the Virtual Human Platform and accelerating the transition from animal-based testing to innovative safety assessment. The Virtual Human Platform integrates data on human physiology, chemical characteristics and perturbations of biological pathways, for the first time in an inclusive and integrated manner that incorporates:- human-relevant scenarios to discriminate vulnerable groups, such as disease state, life course exposure, gender and age- chemicals from different sectors: pharma, consumer products and chemical industry- different regulatory and stakeholder needsThe Virtual Human Platform addresses the emerging societal challenge of the transition to animal-free safety assessment, by integrating various scientific disciplines in the consortium and working with all stakeholders towards implementation and societal acceptance of an approach to chemical safety assessment that is based on human data rather than animal data.
