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.
The 2015 annual meeting of the Netherlands Society of Toxicology (NVT) will be held on June 5th at ‘Kontakt der Kontinenten’ in Soesterberg and will be held in conjunction with the PhD days that will take place on the 4th of June. The theme of the meeting is communication, an essential component of our work:
A non-toxic connective approach.
An invited speaker will lecture on the communication of risk to citizens, a workshop is offered on how to best present (communicate) your results, and we offer all members to communicate their work to each other. We therefore invite members of the society to submit abstracts, as the program will be largely based on what our members would like to present. Submission implies you will have the opportunity to present a poster. A selection of submissions will be granted to give oral presentations.
The committee invites you to join us! For more information visit this website.
The 10th Iberian and 7th Iberoamerican Congress on Environmental Contamination and Toxicology (CICTA 2015) will take place between 14th and 17th of July 2015.
The overall scientific theme of CICTA 2015 will be Environmental Sustainability: insights to the future. The conference will be held at Vila Real, Portugal.

Sustainable Nanotechnology School - first edition
Understanding the environmental, health and safety implications of manufactured nanomaterials to foster their sustainable applications - A COST MODENA, SUN and GUIDEnano training school
The achievement of safe nanoproducts requires an understanding of the properties, biological interactions, fate, risks and environmental impacts of manufactured nanomaterials.
The Sustainable Nanotechnology School aims to transfer the state of the art knowledge on these aspects from key experts to the new generation nano environmental, health and safety (EHS) professionals. In order to do so the school will highlight the best available experimental and modeling approaches and practices for physicochemical characterization, (eco)toxicity testing, exposure, risk, and lifecycle assessment of nanotechnologies, taking various stakeholder perspectives and ethical issues into account. The course is structured to balance breadth and depth in these diverse topics, as well as build an integrative understanding of them, while providing an interactive learning environment and direct access to key experts from Europe and the United States.
When: 11-16 januari 2015
Where: Venice, Italy
