Upcoming trainings

Training confirmed – Agenda here

You want to participate to this training as an Early Career Scientist? You can apply for an award delivered by PETA: https://www.thepsci.eu/genotox-workshop-award/

In the field of genetic toxicology, the repertoire of new in vitro approach methodologies, for identifying potential genotoxicants has expanded considerably in recent years. These novel methods can contribute to better classification of genotoxic compounds by providing mode-of-action information. Information about the genotoxic mode-of-action can be very valuable in weight-of-evidence and adverse outcome pathway approaches. During the workshop you will learn about the latest developments in genetic toxicology and get a hand-on experience with some of these new methods

All lectures and practical workshops will be hosted by Toxys.

The training will only take place if minimum of 4 participants is reached.

Registration fee also includes the participant booklet, catering and social dinner.

The training will start with 0.5 day lectures and will be followed by 1.5 days of practical training (Hands-on training) where participants, divided in small groups will get the chance to manipulate and see the critical steps of the methods with the experts. This is a perfect way to quickly approach a method, as well as data analysis and interpretation.

Two days of Hands-on Training covering practical use of respiratory in vitro 3D tissues and exposure devices

Agenda Soon available

This two days hands-on training hosted by Epithelix will cover practical use of respiratory in vitro 3D tissues and exposure devices to evaluate acute and repeated dose inhalation toxicity. To mimic systemic context, interconnection strategies of lung tissues will be presented.

The training will only take place if minimum of 8 participants is reached.

Registration fee includes the participant booklet, catering and social dinner.

The training will start with 0.5 day lectures and will be followed by 1.5 days of practical training (Hands on-training) where participants, divided in small groups will get the chance to manipulate and see the critical steps of the methods with the experts.

What will I do during Hands-on trainings?

Each hands-on training is scheduled to last for 2-Days. In these two days, the hands-on trainings encompass 20% Lectures and 80% practical training including case studies. In other words, for about more than a day and a half of the trainings each participant will able to actively interact with the experts in small groups of 3-4 people.

What is the difference between “private” sector and “non-private” sector?

The participant must choose the “private” sector in case his/her organization has any commercial activities e.g. selling products or services to third parties.
