ASAT Foundation Supports Safer Medicines Initiative

We are delighted that the Dutch Assuring Safety without Animal Testing Foundation has announced its support for our initiative to modernise drug safety testing by conducting a comparison between human biology-based methods and animal tests using a set of drugs known to cause side effects that were not predicted in animals. It is chaired by Dr Bart Sangster, who is also Vice Chair of the Management Board of the European Food Safety Agency. Dr Sangster’s illustrious career has included a position as Senior Vice President Safety & Environmental Assurance at Unilever, a professorship in Clinical Toxicology at the University of Utrecht, and posts as Head of the Poison Control Centre at the National Institute for Public Health & the Environment and the Intensive Care Department of the University Hospital Utrecht.
