Stefano Lorenzetti as a speaker at our seminar in Östersund the 27-28th of September
Stefano is the project manager of the Life+ project EDESIA.
A project that share our objectives to phase out EDC’s. He will speak about
“Searching for plasticizers’ alternatives by animal-free screening in the LIFE-EDESIA project”
It will give you an introduction about the current internationally agreed definition of EDC, EAS and adverse effect for endocrine disruption along with the mechanism-based screening methods developed or under development within the context of the AOP framework.
Secondly, the LIFE-EDESIA effect-based approach based on an integrated in silico-in vitro tiered screening using consecutively a panel of computational methods and a panel of clinically-relevant, cell specific, endocrine-dependent biomarkers of effects will be discussed within the frame of the regulatory demand for testing methods alternative to animal experimentation.
Stefano is working at ISS – Istituto Superiore di Sanità at the Dpt. of Food Safety and Veterinary Public Health in Rome.
