The EuroBioTox project, financed by the EU between 2017 an d 2023, combined the strength of 63 experts from 23 countries to tackle the many aspects of the threat caused by toxins. Our department was represented in this consortium through the active participation of Emmanuel Lemichez and his team.
EuroBioTox recently produced five Certified Reference Materials (CRMs) for the following protein toxins: ricin, abrin, botulinum neurotoxins A and B and Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin B.
EuroBioTox also launched 19 training programs, developed 11 proficiency tests (PTs) on different biotoxins and created a repository of reagent and tools that can be accessed by all members of the consortium.
With the combination of outstanding lab work and comprehensive networking, EuroBioTox has laid the groundwork for an efficient response.
