The European Society of Toxicology In Vitro (ESTIV) in partnership with the Czech National Institute of Public Health and with the organizers of the 9th World Congress on Alternatives to Animal Experiments (WC9) is pleased to announce the "Practical Training Course on Alternative Methods: Skin and Eye In Vitro Toxicity" taking place on 28–29 August 2014 as a satellite to the WC9 in Prague, Czeech Republic. The training course is offered to scientists, especially students and young scientists, interested in gaining knowledge and practical experience on advanced alternative methods for toxicology assessment. The practical training course will present tools and strategies focusing on in vitro topical toxicity testing for skin and eye irritation and corrosion hazard identification.
During the two-day intensive training course, participants will get the opportunity to discuss the use and the regulatory acceptance of in vitro assays with senior scientists and perform hands-on testing on selected methods under the supervision of experienced trainers.
On June 20th 2014, BelTox is organizing its 6th edition of the one-day introductory course especially designed for journalists, lawyers, international, national and regional regulators, health care professionals, industry and national and local authority safety professionals, consultants, NGO’s and educational institutions:
Introduction to Toxicology and Ecotoxicology as the Scientific Basis for Management of Chemical Risk.
The course will consist of sections on examples of cases involving toxic substances, toxicology, ecotoxicology, epidemiology, health and environmental risk assessment, hazard and risk communication. It will be given in English and will be organized in the Elewijt conference center (located between Mechelen and Brussels). The lecturers are experienced professionals from , academia, authorities, industry and consulting.
The American College of Toxicology (ACT) announces that “Practical Application of Toxicology in Drug Development” will be held again in Edinburgh, United Kingdom in 2014 from September 15–19. This course in toxicology provides an opportunity for professional development for scientists from all parts of the world. Experts will present principles of nonclinical safety evaluation with emphasis on the practical application of these principles and interpretation of nonclinical safety data through the use of case studies. Co-sponsored by Charles River and in association with the British Toxicology Society, this course is one of a series of successful courses offered by ACT.

On behalf of the Research Triangle Park (RTP) area veterinary pathology community, we are pleased to announce the Seventh RTP Rodent Pathology Course, focusing on Endocrine Pathology, to be held September 21-23, 2014 at the Embassy Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/Brier Creek (Address: 8001 Arco Corporate Drive, Raleigh, NC 27617, USA). Our first six courses, on reproductive pathology, neuropathology, cardiopulmonary pathology, immunopathology, hepatobiliary pathology and urinary pathology respectively, were overwhelming successes.
The course is designed to provide valuable information about current topics and techniques in rodent pathology and toxicology to investigative and diagnostic pathologists, trainees, as well as other involved and interested colleagues in the scientific community.
The American College of Toxicology, is sponsoring a course in association with the British Toxicology Society "Practical Application of Toxicology in Drug Development" (September 15-19, 2014, Edinburgh, United Kingdom).
This course is designed to provide a basic training in toxicology. Participants will obtain an overall understanding of the principles of nonclinical safety evaluation with emphasis on the practical application of these principles and interpretation of nonclinical safety data. The course will include discussion of regulatory case studies and a workshop. This toxicology course is intended to benefit individuals working with small and large molecules from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, along with those from Contract Research Organizations and regulatory agencies who are interested in toxicology. Regulatory toxicology in drug development will be emphasized, particularly from the European perspective.
