21 November 2019: BelTox Annual Scientific Meeting 2019

The next annual meeting of BelTox will be organized as a joint event together with IC3Rs and INVITROM, and will take place on 21 November 2019 at the Life Sciences campus of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in Jette-Brussels.

The meeting will be centered around tools for 3Rs testing. The morning session will be focused on strategies as well as in vitro and in silico methodologies for human toxicology and risk assessment. The afternoon session will cover 3R approaches in ecotoxicology and the use of artificial intelligence in risk assessment.

As a tradition in the BelTox annual meetings, there will be a poster viewing session and a young scientist oral presentation session. In fact, the organizers particularly encourage young scientists at doctoral and postdoctoral level to submit abstracts, although all attendees are of course welcome to do so. The young scientists can take part in the contest for best poster or best oral presentation.

The meeting will be followed upon on 22 November by a complimentary workshop for young scientists that will focus on designing a research project according to the 3Rs principles.

More details will follow.

5-10 April 2020: Applied In Vitro Toxicology Course

The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV) will organize the “Applied In Vitro Toxicology Course” in collaboration with BelTox and UCLouvain on 5-10 April 2020 in Brussels. This course is to be considered as the in vitro module of the toxicology training program of UCLouvain-BelTox, which will count for the curriculum for the University Certificate in Toxicology of the UCLouvain. This course is recognized by EUROTOX as eligible for European Registered Toxicologist (ERT) accreditation (topic B19). More information can be found on the attached leaflet. For full program, speakers and registration, please see: https://www.estiv.org/projects-activities/training-course/.
