On behalf of the Slovak Toxicology Society and the Local Organising Committee, we invite you to participate in the 53rd Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology to be held in Bratislava from the 10th to the 13th of September, 2017.
The Scientific Programme Committee is preparing an exciting programme with over 30 symposia and workshops that will highlight the novel findings in the field of toxicology. Four Poster Sessions and five Continuing Education Courses will offer a wide range of opportunities to enhance and enrich the professional experience.

Let’s meet in Bratislava in 2017 – your presence will be a key part in the meeting’s success.

Kemikaliekonferens, tema bygg, 17 okt

I år kommer vi beröra byggmaterial och de kemiska ämnen dessa innehåller. Anmäl dig till konferensen i oktober och lär dig mer om hur detta påverkar vår miljö.
Byggmaterial är inte bara rent trä, metall och sten idag. Materialen och produkterna är ofta utvecklade och sammansatta varor med speciell funktion. Med detta följer att innehållet ökar av olika kemiska ämnen som bygger upp material och ger en funktion. Vad vet vi om vilka ämnen som kan vara farliga och var de finns samt hur de kan läcka ut? Hur kan vi arbeta för att med den kunskap vi har bygga mer kemikaliesmart? Kom på vår konferens och lyssna på olika aspekter och få tips och idéer.

Konferensen kommer webbsändas live och spelas in, så du kan följa den på distans eller se i efterhand.

Tid och plats
17 oktober 2017, klockan 13.00–17.00
Jönköping University, JU-aulan eller på webben.

Anmälan
Anmälan till konferensen sker via webformuläret på denna hemsida. Vi kommer att förse dig med den senaste information om konferensen, skicka ut utvärdering och webblänk. Anmäl dig senast den 9 oktober. Ditt deltagande är kostnadsfritt.

Hälsningar Jönköpings kommun

-CES 10: Endocrine System
Tuesday 5th – Thursday 7th December 2017, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK

REGISTRATION FOR THIS SYMPOSIUM IS NOW OPEN.

The early registration fee is available until Sunday 5th November 2017 with registration closing on Sunday 19th November 2017.

This symposium will provide an in-depth coverage of endocrine system pathology including information on INHAND nomenclature for the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pancreas in rodents; assessment of circulating hormones in nonclinical toxicity studies – study design, analysis and interpretation; an overview of endocrine disrupters; adrenocortical toxicology: merchanisms and significant findings, risk assessment; use of molecular markers, IHC and morpohmetry; genetic basis of metabolic disease, type 2 diabetes and obesity. There will also be interactive sessions and workshop/case presentations on endocrine system problems which will form an important part of the symposium.

This symposium is the event for toxicological and discovery pathologists (and other scientists working with animal models), clinical pathologists and toxicologists as well as non-clinical regulatory scientists to learn about recent scientific advances. As well as providing CPD for experienced members of the profession, the symposium is open to students/residents and those at the start of their pathology career.

SafeSciMET

European Modular Education and Training Programme in Safety Sciences for Medicines
Read more


SafeSciMET http://www.safescimet.eu presents a new and unique pan-European education and training network. In current drug safety education and training in Europe, an integrative and translational approach is lacking. SafeSciMET addressed this shortfall by developing and establishing a comprehensive modular Education & Training Programme in Safety Sciences for Medicines (SafesciMET).

One round of the 20 core courses available has been finalised. A second round is ongoing. Course teachers come from academia and industry throughout Europe, including Eastern Country States. Unique to the courses is that Industry brings in up-to-date and real cases.

SafeSciMET is part of the EU/EFPIA initiative Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI), a public-private parthership. See (http://www.efpia.eu)  and (http://www.imi.europa.eu/) .

Uppsala universitet is responsible for the Student Office of SafeSciMET and gives two courses. Karolinska Institutet provides one course.

IUTOX and the Mexican Society of Toxicology (SOMTOX) are pleased to announce the next triennial International Congress of Toxicology (ICT) to be held in October 2-6, 2016 at the Convention Center in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. It is our great pleasure to invite you to an ICT held for the first time in Latin America, in a city that is the gateway to the Mayan World.

The Congress major theme is “Toxicology and Global Sustainability”. This meeting will offer a forum for sharing basic and applied research in Toxicology and is aimed to convene international scientists presenting their results related to the exposure to toxic agents, adverse effects, mechanisms of toxicity, preventive alternatives, normativity, etc, to strengthen the science-policy interface to faster the progress towards sustainability. The diverse sessions will provide a forum to exchange information, to establish collaborations and networking, and to discuss cutting-edge research.

As a Latin American country, Mexico is proud of the hospitality of its people and be home of 27 UNESCO´s World Heritage Sites, and it is extremely honored to host the XIV International Congress of Toxicology. Merida is known as the “White City”, and is considered as the cultural and tourist capital of the Mayan World. In addition, Merida is close to many delighting places, such as beautiful beaches of the Caribbean, small towns with colonial flavors, and the most important archeological sites of the Mayan culture: Chichén Itzá, Uxmal, Mayapán and Kabah.

SOMTOX offers to undertake its best efforts to achieve a substantial participation of different countries from the region and contribute to IUTOX to consolidate its presence around the world. Please mark the ICTXIV meeting on your calendar!

Kind regards,

Organizing Committee ​

Full-time Master’s Programme in Toxicology

organised by IMM, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm

Read more

The Master’s Programme in Toxicology has been offered every second year since 1976 and was one of the first toxicology programmes world-wide. The program is still unique in its two-year cohesive program focusing on toxicology and human health risk assessment.

The program is directed to either Research or a Professional career. It is designed to provide a scientific knowledge base in toxicology and health risk assessment to meet the needs from: Universities, Industry and Governmental agencies.

The aim is to educate students with toxicological knowledge within principally three areas:

  • Basic and applied toxicological research
  • Toxicological investigations and testing
  • Regulatory toxicology and health risk assessment/safety assessment

The programme is a two-year, full-time programme and consists of compulsory taught components as well as an individual degree project and a possibility to take advanced elective courses.
