As Chair of the EUROTOX Molecular Toxicology Specialty Section
, I am pleased to announce the Inaugural Course on Molecular Toxicology
taking place June 26-29, 2019 at Ege University in Izmir, Turkey.
Why should you attend this course?
Molecular toxicology is the discipline that particularly emerged in recent years as a result of the paradigm shift currently going on in the field of toxicology, which involves transitioning from classical toxicology, focusing on apical endpoints of toxicity in animal models, to more predictive in vitro toxicology, relying on information on toxic mechanisms.
Driven by these recent developments, the Molecular Toxicology Specialty Section within EUROTOX aimed to establish a comprehensive modular education and training in this field. In this inaugural course, a series of state-of-the-art lectures related to 4 themes will be provided, namely; General principles, Receptor-mediated toxic outcomes, Targets, cellular responses and interventions, and Approaches to toxicity prediction.
Each lecture within these themes will elaborate on both the basics and progress regarding specific topics pertinent to the molecular toxicology area. This 2.5 days’ course will be assessed by a multiple-choice exam.
This first course is intended to be followed by other complementary molecular toxicology courses in time, and has been recognised as an ERT Course on the core topic B4: Molecular and Cellular Toxicology.
Who should attend this course?
This course is intended for (post)doctoral students and early-stage scientists from industry, academia or regulatory agencies who recently became active in the field of toxicology. Applicants should ideally have a background in toxicology, pharmaceutical sciences, biology, chemistry, (bio)medical sciences, veterinary sciences or equivalent.
