The Spanish Association of Toxicology (AETOX) and EUROTOX in the name of the International Union of Toxicology (IUTOX), invite you to participate in IUTOX-2010, the XII International Congress of Toxicology. Cefic LRI is sponsoring the microRNA session entitled “Roles for miRNAs in chemically mediated toxicity“, a specialty section of Molecular Toxicology due on 22 July 2010.
The Congress will encourage the interaction between Academia, Industry, Regulators, Expert in Human (clinical and epidemiology) and Environmental Toxicology.
Chemical Safety is increasingly requiring integrated and translational approaches to get successful possibilities of innovative application of the results of research and development based on added values with safety to human health and the environment. From the most basic molecular and cellular research, going through in vitro alternative approach of understanding long term effects, “omics” strategist for in vitro and more rational animal testing and human diagnosis, application of human data (epidemiological and clinical data) to risk assessment in regulatory purpose, alternative efficient strategists for toxicity evaluation and computing data handling, efficient process for realistic risk characterization of thousands of chemicals, risk communication and social acceptance. All these different levels of activities need to be integrated in translational approaches for successful industrial, biomedical and environmental applications. New material as nanomaterials and new drug generations and biotechnological products and the objectives of sustainable chemistry open to new scientific and methodological approaches.
Multidisciplinary and translational approaches for interacting expert from academia (basis mechanistic, effects testing, monitoring), industry, clinical toxicologists, environmentalists, regulators, and technological developers, will be especially welcome.
The XII International Congress of Toxicology will take place on 19-23 July 2010 at MontjuÏc, the historic venue at the Congress Centre in Barcelona, Spain. To register online please click here.
