Read-across predictions of nanoparticle hazard endpoints: a mathematical optimization approach

NanoCommons supported paper: Read-across predictions of nanoparticle hazard endpoints: a mathematical optimization approach Abstract In the present study, a novel read-across methodology for the prediction of toxicity related end-points of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) is developed. The proposed method lies in the interface between the two main read-across approaches, namely the analogue and the grouping methods,…

Data management in nanosafety research: From bench to database thus streamlining analysis and publication – OpenTox Asia 2018

Tassos Papadiamantis of the University of Birmingham presented NanoCommons’ data management goals and approach. His presentation focused on the need of data management in nanosafety research and how it can cover all aspects of the nanosafety data lifecycle, starting from experimental planning and reaching FAIR data. Data management can also ensure that collected data stay safe, can be…
