The BelTox course Introduction to Toxicology and Ecotoxicology took place in the Elewijt Conference Center on September 10th, 2010. This one-day course organized for the 4th time was attended by 41 participants coming from industry (46%), European federations (20%), authorities (12%), institutions (12%) or others (10%). The global overview of the many aspects of toxicology, even understandable for non-experts, was greatly appreciated. Two thirds of the participants declared to be interested in a more detailed course.
The experts contributing to this course were coming from academia (Prof.Lison, Prof. Hoet and Prof. Nawrot), toxicology consulting (Dr Van Deun and Dr Tencalla), industry (Dr de Gerlache and Dr Martens) and the Scientific Institute of Public Health (Dr Blaude).
We leave the last word about the negative feedback to one of the participants: "Even after hurting my brain… I can not find a negative comment for this course."
