The European Society of Toxicology in Vitro ESTIV wishes to express its full solidarity with Ukraine

We wish to express our solidarity with our Ukrainian colleagues, the Ukrainian people and with everyone else caught up in the terrible events of the last few days. ESTIV condemns all hostile actions that lead to unnecessary human suffering and appeals to all parties involved to end the armed conflict and to engage in a constructive dialogue.

We encourage all our members to provide humanitarian help to our suffering friends from Ukraine and other nations touched by the crisis at the eastern borders of EU. Please consider sending donations to charitable organisations – every little help is important at this moment. 

Organisations, that are willing to accept students or researchers escaping from Ukraine, please post your offers also via Linked in with the hashtag #StandWithUkraine  and #ScienceForUkraine. The webpage displays opportunities for scientists forced to flee Ukraine to find help and for others to provide help. Another list of laboratories and institutes offering help can be found here:
