This course is jointly organised by the diXa project and the ESNATS project.
The ESNATS - Embryonic Stem cell-based Novel Alternative Testing Strategies – Project aims to develop a novel toxicity test platform based on embryonic stem cells (ESCs), in particular human ESC (hESCs) to accelerate drug development, reduce related R&D costs and propose a powerful alternative to animal tests. The Data Infrastructure for Chemical Safety (diXa) project works with past and current EU FP7 projects, developing Alternatives to Animal testing, to safeguard data for the future. diXa aims to develop a sustainable data infrastructure to capture all data produced by toxicogenomics projects in a standardized, harmonized and sustainable manner. The lack of such an infrastructure currently prevents innovative breakthroughs from meta-analyses of joint databases and systems modeling. The diXa Data Warehouse will link to other globally available chemical/toxicological databases and data bases on molecular data of human disease to facilitate interdisciplinary research.
The ESNATS project finishes at the end of September 2013 and they will be presenting their results during this joint training course. The aim is for ESNATS data to be freely available through the diXa data warehouse.
