Dear members,

‘Translational research’ for a toxicologist has a multifaceted meaning. During the meeting, you will be guided through the maze of translational toxicology. Different fields of toxicology will be touched upon during these two days, all the way from molecules to regulatory approval. We will discuss the importance of in vitro, animal and non-animal tests versus the clinical human approach, resulting in a lively discussion on different views on alternatives to animal testing. The cutting-edge topic of nanoparticle will be addressed. The members of the occupational toxicology section will debate on recent cases in the media.

We hope to welcome you at the meeting: “Translational Toxicology: From Molecule to Regulations” in Kaap Doorn, Doorn. The NVT-member day, including the annual NVT business meeting, is scheduled for June 20th, followed by the ‘young scientists’-day on June 21st.

Both PhD- and MSc-students can apply for a speed presentation during the ‘Young scientist’-day, 21st of June. However, due to the limited space in the program, only a selection of abstracts will be assigned with a presentation.

Here as well, a selection will be performed after submission of the abstracts.
