This three day meeting brings together the principles of engineering and life sciences in tissue development and regenerative medicine to discuss scientific research and developments of clinical applications from leading experts in the field. The newest research and developing technology will be discussed in an informal setting with plenty of networking opportunities
Who Should Attend: Anyone interested in the use of a combination of cells, engineering and materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physio-chemical factors to improve or replace biological functions would benefit from attending this event
The topic of this congress, “Bridging Sciences for Safety”, upholds the important role of Toxicology in bridging the knowledge of sciences like Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacology, Physiology, and many others, for the desired path of humankind towards a safer world. EUROTOX is the Federation of national societies of toxicology in Europe, which together have approximately 7,000 members. In addition, EUROTOX counts more than 200 individual members coming from 50 countries, mostly from Western Europe.
As such, the EUROTOX Annual Congress certainly represents a unique occasion to participate in the most important regular event of Toxicology in Europe and one of the most relevant in the world. It provides excellent opportunities for meeting delegates from all over the world, and is a privileged stage for exchanging ideas and experiences among colleagues and friends, establishing and reinforcing scientific networks, and learning the forefront scientific developments from distinguished scientists, opening minds for new concepts and paradigms in Toxicology and related sciences.
The Continuing Education Courses (CEC) held on the first day of the meeting are additional strong reasons to attend the 2015 EUROTOX Congress. Well-acknowledged scientists offer cutting-edge courses on dominant subjects of Toxicology, such as 3R methods in Toxicology, new recreational drugs, thresholds of toxicological concern, hazard characterization, co-exposure risk assessment, and risk assessment in food safety. CECs are usually well attended, not only by young researchers but also by teachers aiming to upgrade knowledge and skills
We are pleased to announce the eleventh meeting on Cell Death, to be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory from Tuesday evening, September 15, until after lunch on Saturday, September 19, 2015. The meeting will cover the field of cell death and apoptosis by specific sessions devoted to the topics listed below.
The format of the meeting will include morning and evening sessions consisting of short talks, limited to approximately 15 minutes, principally on unpublished work. Because the audience will be composed of investigators with rather diverse backgrounds, the session chairs will anchor each session with a 20 minute talk to provide an overview of the specific area. The other submitted abstracts will be presented in poster sessions in the free afternoons. As usual at Cold Spring Harbor Meetings, all abstracts of both poster and platform sessions will be published in an abstract book given to all the participants.

Plan to join your colleagues on October 1-2, 2015 for the next ASCCT annual meeting, which will be held at the Environmental Protection Agency in the Research Traingle Park area of North Carolina. Please share this announcement with your colleagues. We are excited to have confirmed two wonderful plenary speakers and have sketched out the basic program. The meeting web site (linked below) provides additional program details, and instructions for abstract submission. As in past meetings, several talks will be selected for oral presentations from submitted abstracts.
We are extending the meeting to one-and-a-half days to allow for more talks, including from submitted abstracts, which have consistently been of high quality.
We are also looking for member volunteers to serve on the program committee, which will review submitted abstracts to select oral presentations. if you would like to volunteer please respond to this email by June 5.
We look forward to seeing you to North Carolina in October!
IIVS Study Director Kimberly Norman is an invited speaker at this year’s Personal Care Products Council Science Symposium in Newark, NJ. She will be speaking on current testing strategies for eye and skin irritation using non-animal methods. IIVS will also have a booth a this year’ meeting. Please stop by to speak with us about the presentation or our testing services in other areas of toxicology, like sensitization and inhalation toxicology.
The Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC) teaches a one and a half day workshop at the National Agricultural Library (NAL) in Beltsville, Maryland for individuals who are responsible for providing information to meet the requirements of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA).
The objectives of the workshop are to provide:
An overview of the AWA and its information requirements;
A review of the alternatives concept;
A comprehensive introduction to NAL, AWIC and other organizations;
Instruction on the use of existing information databases/networks; and
On-line database searching experience.
Held every three years, Congresses on Toxicology in Developing Countries (CTDC) are sponsored by IUTOX. The meetings provide a forum for discussing toxicological problems facing developing countries in the future and exchanging views with toxicologists from all over the world, especially from developing countries and regions.
On behalf of the SEURAT-1 Symposium Organising Committee, we are proud to announce that the registrations to the to the SEURAT-1 Symposium entitled Painting the future animal-free safety assessment of chemical substances: Achievements of SEURAT-1 taking place on 4 December 2015 in Brussels are now open! The Symposium is open to the public, you can register your participation at the link above.
Annual two-day Summit bringing together experts in global chemicals regulations from around the world. Through presentations, round table discussions and Q&As, delegates will hear about the latest regulatory challenges facing the safe management of chemicals and learn how best to respond.
