ESTIV best poster award during the EUROTOX2019 conference

The 55th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology (EUROTOX) took place in Helsinki-Finland on 8-11 September 2019 and was co-organized by the Finnish Society of Toxicology (FST). The theme of the congress was “Science providing solutions” and the scientific program highlighted significant developments and achievements in the field of toxicology, including in vitro and in silico toxicology. ESTIV has granted a best poster award, including a prize of 500€ and 1 year free ESTIV membership, during the congress to Lenny Kamelia from the Division of Toxicology at Wageningen University and Research in The Netherlands for the poster entitled “A battery of animal-free in vitro assays for evaluating prenatal developmental toxicity potency of highly complex petroleum substances”. The poster was selected by a jury consisting of ESTIV board members based on originality, complexity, presentation, rationale and relevance to the field of in vitro and in silico toxicology.
