Purpose and goal
The long-term aim is to build up the activities of the new section, RISE - Chemical and pharmaceutical Safety, to meet the needs of society, industry and academia for toxicological safety assessments and hence secure a national infrastructure within the whole drug development chain. The section will also complement and collaborate with the Life Science ecosystems nationally and internationally. The goal is that the section RISE-Chemical and Pharmaceutical Safety will be self-supporting after 4 years of start-up funding.
Expected results and effects
The great expertise and experience that has been built up in the infrastructure of Swetox / Gärtuna will be secured through the transition to RISE. Thus, current and future needs for safety assessments of new materials and pharmaceuticals will be available to society, academia and industry, both nationally and internationally.
