Advancing the Acceptance of Non-Animal Testing Methods

The A*STAR Innovations in Food and Chemical Safety (IFCS) Programme takes a multi-disciplinary approach to help advance the science of chemical safety assessment with fit-for-purpose non-animal tools. Working closely with local and international regulators, IHLs and industry, we look to develop and accelerate the adoption of novel approaches for predictive toxicology and improve food and chemical safety frameworks.

Partnering with Local & International Authorities


► To build new 21st century risk assessment frameworks
► To promote acceptance & validate non-animal alternative safety tests

Supporting Singapore’s Industry


► Through innovative testing strategies for novel ingredients
► Through research collaborations, knowledge/data sharing & expert advice

Working with Singapore’s IHLs


► To educate a new generation of forward-looking regulatory professionals & scientists

Advancing the Acceptance of Non-Animal Testing Methods

The A*STAR Innovations in Food & Chemical Safety Programme aims to develop novel methods and approaches to assess the safety and toxicity of chemicals introduced to the market. Particular emphasis is on building 21st century risk assessment strategies which both minimise the use of animals and increase human relevance and accuracy of risk predictions. The Programme benefits extensively from our close relationship with the Bioinformatics Institute (BII), pulling on their inter-disciplinary expertise and collaborations across Singapore. By combining our strengths, we hope to build a strong pole of research in the food & consumer safety field and promote acceptance and application of alternative testing methods by authorities in Singapore and internationally.
