83rd Annual Meeting of the German Society for Experimental and Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology (DGPT)
19th Annual Meeting of the Association of Clinical Pharmacology (VKliPha)
With contribution of the AGAH
6–9 March 2017 - Heidelberg
The programme booklet of the 2nd German Pharm-Tox Summit 2017 is now available online (PDF).
The programme with its interesting symposia and talks will guarantee an exciting conference. Give yourself the opportunity to exchange know-how focused on pharmacology, clinical pharmacology and toxicology.
There are special sessions for young scientists organised by the Forum Junge Wissenschaft. Please find all details here.
In addition the AGAH Workshop is still available. Here you can find the programme (PDF)

A workshop 'Integrated Exposure and Effects Assessments' is organised on 11-12 April at the Vrije Universiteit in cooperation with US EPA and the Japanese National Institute for Environmental Studies.
In the context of the European Commission's Communication (Action 1) published in response to the European Citizens' Initiative "Stop Vivisection", the Joint Research Centre's European Union Reference Laboratory for Alternative to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) is conducting this public survey to solicit input from individuals and organisations i) to identify all types of knowledge sources that might be relevant to Replace, Reduce or Refine (the '3Rs') the use of animals for scientific purposes ii) to understand how such knowledge is currently disseminated and iii) to highlight what could be done to fill knowledge gaps and enhance knowledge sharing.
The results of this survey will be fed into a comprehensive study currently being undertaken by the Commission to map data, information and knowledge resources available in different scientific fields and industry sectors that can be exploited in some way to replace animal studies with alternative approaches not involving animals, to adapt studies to reduce the number of animals needed, or to refine studies so as to minimise pain, suffering and distress of the animal, and to improve its welfare. Moreover, the study aims to explore how sharing of knowhow and resources could be enhanced to accelerate overall progress in the 3Rs in every domain where animals are used for a scientific purpose, whether it be for basic biological research, toxicological testing, or for training and education. The outcome of the study will be made public by the end of 2016.
