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.
