21 November 2019: BelTox Annual Scientific Meeting 2019

The 2019 annual meeting (AM) of BelTox will be hosted by the VUB at its Life Sciences campus in Jette on 21 November 2019.  The focus of AM19 will be put on tools for 3Rs testing, as originally proposed by AM17 participants in December 2017 and confirmed by the Steering Committee last March.

The AM19 will be co-organized with the IC3Rs platform of the VUB and the International Society for In Vitro Methods (INVITROM). The programme is currently under construction and will appear on this website in due course.

The AM19 will be followed up on 22 November 2019 by a hands-on workshop devoted to designing a research project proposal according to the 3Rs principles.

More details will follow.

ESTIV-BelTox workshop on in vitro toxicology

The 2nd ESTIV Course on In Vitro Toxicology is organised in collaboration with BelTox. It will be held from 8 to 13 January 2017 at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) in Belvaux, Luxembourg.  This 5-day course combines cutting-edge lectures by leading experts with highly interactive group exercises. The lectures cover a broad spectrum of subjects pertinent to regulatory, screening and investigative in vitro toxicology. The group exercises consist of real-life case studies in which the participants will apply the principles of in vitro toxicology to the risk assessment of chemical substances. Course examination will be based upon presentation and discussion of the case studies. The participants will receive a certificate in the case of a positive evaluation.  For registration and further information, see http:/estivbeltox2017.webs.com/
