REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR IN VITRO METHOD DEVELOPMENT
The PETA International Science Consortium Ltd. (PISC) is accepting proposals for funding of the development and preliminary validation of in vitro methods for hazard assessment of inhaled aerosolized multiwalled carbon nanotubes. This request builds on recommendations from a February workshop at which experts from various sectors and disciplines considered requirements for in vitro models for this purpose and made recommendations on cell types, exposure systems, endpoints, and dosimetry considerations for such systems.
The deadline for proposals is May 29. More information and an application form are available at http://www.piscltd.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/PISC-RFP-FINAL_FORM-2.pdf.
