ASCCT / ESTIV webinars

European Society of Toxicology In Vitro > Projects / Activities > ASCCT / ESTIV webinars

ESTIV organizes free webinars on a monthly basis together with the American Society for Cellular and Computational Toxicology (ASCCT). These webinars cover a broad spectrum of topics relevant to the fields of in vitro and in silico toxicology. ESTIV members are welcome to propose topics and speakers at any time. All webinars are recorded, archived and available for ESTIV members.
