Data from high throughput in vitro tests are being generated for many chemicals of environmental and commercial interest, with the expectation that in vitro assay data could ultimately be used to predict adverse effects of chemical exposures in vivo. Translating values obtained from in vitro assays into estimates of in vivo outcomes is a complex process involving the use of mathematical modeling and increasingly complex test systems. This series of four webinars culminating in an in-person workshop aims to address the capabilities and the limitations of in vitro to in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) within the context of risk decision making.
The goals of this one-day workshop are: 1) To progress the perspective on the OpenTox community vision and opportunity around an open platform in predictive toxicology and safety assessment; 2) To bring together different stakeholder perspectives related to OpenTox - research, application, innovation, industry and regulatory; and 3) To brainstorm the potential for collaboration, infrastructure development and value creation around OpenTox.
The Society of Toxicology 55th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, March 13–17, 2016, in New Orleans, Louisiana, promises more than 150 scientific sessions; thousands of abstract presentations; continuing education courses; approximately 350 ToxExpo exhibitors offering you the latest information on services and technology; awards presentations; receptions; career guidance and support; student activities; and more.
The 2016 Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference (TRAC) will be a 4-day meeting focusing on topics in risk assessment principles and practice. The conference provides attendees with an overview of current research, methodologic, and practice issues that are the focus of risk assessment efforts in various Federal agencies, academic institutions, industry, and other organizations.
Please join us for our second workshop for respiratory toxicology exploring in vitro exposure systems and dosimetry assessment tools for inhaled tobacco products. The workshop will highlight the current status of in vitro to in vivo correlations, whole tobacco smoke and E-cigarette aerosol/vapor constituents, in vitro exposure systems, dosimetry approaches, the exposure microenvironment, and promising technologies that may advance science in these areas. Speakers from industry, government, academia, and non-profits will be presenting in addition to moderated breakout sessions to explore in vitro methods in greater detail.
At this meeting we will discuss and develop important components for driving 21st century approaches to safety assessment forward. Their successful assembly and application will benefit greatly the health of our society and our environment and the private and public sector activities supporting those goals.
This conference will bring together experts and stakeholders from across the Americas, with a focus on the Six Rs: Replacement, Reduction, Refinement, Read-across, Relevance, and Roadmaps.
