The objective of this Challenge is to identify partners with novel solutions/expertise to help develop alternative, efficacious, non-animal (preferably in vitro or in silico based) assay(s) to more efficiently evaluate the developmental toxicity potential of candidate chemicals (molecular weight 300-800 g/Mol). Each assay would ideally be easy to implement, faster and cheaper than the traditional assays already available, while improving or at least maintaining acceptable predictability as compared to already available assays. The overall solution is considered likely to be a combination of several assays that are complementary (in parallel or successive) to each other. Individual assays can be specific to one mode of action known to associate with developmental toxicity in mammals
