Building the Innovative Platform for Detecting the Cardiotoxicity of Chemicals

ALTERNATIVE will develop an innovative platform able to detect the cardiotoxicity of chemicals and their biotransformation products. The novel platform will enable regulators and industry to identify, quantify and prevent cardiotoxic co-exposures to industrial chemicals and pharmaceuticals in a cost-effective way. ALTERNATIVE will particularly focus on cardiotoxic effects on older people, which is of high relevance in view of the ageing EU population and the high spread of cardiovascular diseases.
