In conjunction with the upcoming International Conference on Toxicology (ICT) in Honolulu July 15-18th, ASCCT is co-hosting two trainings related to in vitro and in silico approaches. If you are attending the meeting add these to your calendar!
Training on New Approach Methodologies: Alternatives for acute and contact toxicity assessment
WHEN: July 17, 2019, 1:00 PM – 2:20 PM
WHERE: Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Hibiscus 1 & 2
The American Society for Cellular and Computational Toxicology invites you to attend this training to get up to date on the latest in vitro and in silico models and approaches for acute and contact toxicology. Presenters from EPA, NIH, and more will discuss scientific and regulatory progress in the development and acceptance of new approaches that are replacing and reducing in vivo toxicology tests in the chemical, pesticide, and personal care sectors and provide practical advice on implementing them.
Light snacks will be served. Please contact Secretary Kristie Sullivan at email@example.com with any questions.
AOP Hands-on Training: Building the Foundation for Predictive Toxicology
WHEN: Tuesday, July 16, 4:30 PM – 6:30 PM
WHERE: Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort Hibiscus 1 & 2
AOPs were originally conceived as a practical solution to a practical problem: how to integrate molecular and cellular information into chemical safety assessments. But in reality they are so much more: they are a transparent, highly curated, living document representing current biological knowledge and are useful in assay and integrated testing strategy design, supporting weight-of-evidence interpretations and decisions, hypothesis generation, developing predictive models and focusing and directing research.
This seminar invites you to deepen your understanding of the Adverse Outcome Pathway framework. Following an introduction and overview of the OECD AOP framework and presentation of a real-life case study of AOP development and application, participants will be guided through an example of AOP-building in the AOP Wiki. Sponsored by the ASCCT and the Human Toxicology Project.
