“The Application of Emerging Tools for Bioaccumulation Assessment: Integration of Biotransformation” Training Course

Start date: 13 May. 2018

End date: 13 May. 2018

A full-day training course will be held on Sunday, 13 May 2018, in Rome, Italy (in conjunction with the SETAC Europe Meeting) aimed at:

  • Providing an overview of the newly-developed rainbow trout liver S9 fraction and cryopreserved trout hepatocyte substrate depletion assays for the evaluation of xenobiotic biotransformation in fish (currently draft OECD Test Guidelines)
  • Highlighting and discussing recent advances for in silico predictions of biotransformation
  • Providing an introduction and overview of the Bioaccumulation Assessment Tool (BAT)
  • Demonstrating the application of BAT using illustrative hands-on case examples

This course is co-sponsored by Cefic-LRI and the Health and Environmental Science Institute (HESI).  Space in the course is limited; please email Jon Arnot (jon@arnotresearch.com) and Michelle Embry (membry@hesiglobal.org) directly if you are interested in taking the course.

All participants in the course should bring wireless-enabled laptops with Windows and Microsoft Excel and USB.

See here the draft agenda and a descriptor abstract of the course.

Web-based videos demonstrating the BAT will be made available.
