The documentary 'QSARs in REACH?' is based on interviews with regulators, industry and QSAR developers, and addresses some of the key issues and priorities in the further use of QSARs within REACH.
The documentary was first shown at the ORCHESTRA booth at the 2011 SETAC Europe conference in Milan. Here it can be viewed online in 4 short separate sections. The 20+ contributors are listed below and at the end of the final section, with our thanks to them.
