The desire to transition to animal-free systemic toxicity testing is fueled by testing needs such as the European REACH regulation and a possible US TSCA reauthorization as well as testing bans for cosmetic ingredients in Europe. Other areas and novel products could similarly benefit from human predictive approaches. A recent stocktaking (Adler et al. 2011) and its expert review (Hartung et al. 2011) identified gaps in the science available. In order to promote the development of a roadmap to close these gaps, an expert workshop was held (Basketter et al 2012), which shall be presented and discussed here in a multi-stakeholder forum.
