We collaborate with many national and international networks and individuals.
- ECVAG – a European network of labs carrying out trials to evaluate caused of variability in the comet assay.
- JACVAM – Japanese comet assay validation study, for which I am a consultant.
- ComNet – to establish the comet assay as a validated human biomonitoring tool (see Projects, above).
- ESCODD was an EC concerted action (see above) with about 25 partners; informal and in some cases formal collaborations within the group have continued since the end of the project. The same applies to the 15 partners in the COMICS project.
- I have been deeply involved in the comet assay ‘community’ for many years, and take a leading role in the biennial Comet Assay Workshop, which attracts over 100 participants. In addition, we have run hands-on training workshops on this technique in several countries.
