16–19 October 2012, Lisbon, Portugal
The Portuguese Toxicology Association will host the European Society of Toxicology in Vitro 2012 International Congress, ESTIV2012, in Lisbon, Portugal, 16–19 October 2012.
As in previous ESTIV events, this conference will bring together researchers and students from academia and industry involved in the development and use of in vitro methods in toxicology. The scientific program includes state-of-the-art lectures, workshops, and original communications and poster sessions. ESTIV 2012 will cover a broad range of topics addressing systemic toxicity, local toxicity, developmental toxicity with emphasis on physiologically relevant markers, marker profiles, and molecular mechanisms and pathways.
ESTIV2012 will explore challenges and successes of non-animal approaches for toxicity testing. As with previous ESTIV Conferences, a special student session will also be organized, where young researchers will be invited to briefly present their work, with an award for the best presentation. For the first time and in addition to the cutting-edge topics that will be covered in the conference, a practical workshop will be organized on 20 October. Participants will gain hands-on experience with computerized in vitro—in vivo extraplotation strategies.
In addition to the scientific program, attendees will experience the warm hospitality, excellent climate, rich culture, and great food that Lisbon has to offer. The conference venue is located in the new part of the city, close to the airport and the Expo waterfront.
ESTIV2012 will focus on new developments in toxicity testing and the mechanism of action of chemicals and nanomaterials, with a special emphasis on the following themes:
- Dermal Toxicity
- Ocular Toxicity
- Dermal Sensitization
- Innate Immune Responses in Toxicity
- Carcinogenicity Testing
- Reproductive and Developmental Testing
- Systemic Toxicity
- Computational Toxicity and Toxicokinetics
