Dr Hazel Jackson
Science Director at Animal Free Research UK.
Dr Helena Kandarova
My main scientific interest is in tissue engineering of reconstructed in vitro 3D organotypic models that are used for in vitro toxicity testing. I have unique expertise in development of in vitro assays with 3D tissue models, their validation and implementation into the regulatory toxicology and OECD Test Guidelines.
I've been a part of many exciting scientific as well as business projects and gained invaluable managerial and business skills.
I posses extensive experience in planning, conducting and managing in vitro studies used for risk and safety assessment of chemicals, cosmetics, medical devices and household products.
The main goal of my work is to reduce and replace animal based methods used in toxicology and pharmacology by innovative, more reliable techniques and tools that the modern science is offering these days.
