The 52nd Congress of EUROTOX took place in Seville-Spain on 4-7 September 2016 and was organized by the Turkish Society of Toxicology. The theme of the 52nd congress was “Protecting public and environmental health by understanding and communicating toxicology” and the scientific program highlighted significant developments and achievements in the field of toxicology, including in vitro and in silico toxicology. ESTIV has granted the best poster award, including a prize of 500€ and 1 year free ESTIV membership, during the 52nd EUROTOX Congress to Vânia Vilas Boas from the Laboratory of Toxicology - Biological Sciences Department of the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Porto - Portugal for the poster entitled “Targeting chemokine receptor CXCR4 with magnetic particles to eliminate leukaemia cells with magnetic hyperthermia”. The poster was selected by the jury consisting of Mathieu Vinken, Bas Blaauboer en Paul Jennings based on originality, complexity, presentation, rationale and relevance to the field of in vitro and in silico toxicology. Congratulations to Vânia!
