Post-Congress Workshop

AFSA Masterclass & Episkin Academy Training

Note: Only for participants also registered to the ESTIV 2024 Congress.

AFSA Masterclass is a course on next-generation risk assessment process (NGRA), which is an exposure-led, hypothesis-driven risk assessment approach that integrates existing knowledge with in silico, in chemico, and in vitro approaches. In this 2 hours-course taught by experts from AFSA (Animal Free Safety Assessment Collaboration), you will have an overview of each step of next-generation risk assessment process (NGRA), followed by a specific module on In silico/Read Across.

Episkin Academy Training is a course that gives you a tour of our reconstructed tissue models and covers the best ways to use them in your applications and validated methods. You will have the opportunity to realize by yourself skin and eye irritation tests with unknown products. The course is taught by highly experienced scientists from EPISKIN and includes lectures (inspired by OECD guidelines (TG431, TG439, TG492), SOPs) and hands-on exercises that provide real-world experience.
