    Annual congress of the French Society of Toxicology

    This year's annual congress of the French Society of Toxicology ("Société Française de Toxicologie", SFT in short) will be held in Paris from November 4 to 5. The aim of SFT is to bring together experts from the various areas of toxicology in order to facilitate and promote the exchange of new findings. The focus of this year's SFT Congress is on new models, new approaches, and new challenges in toxicological risk assessment. Fraunhofer ITEM scientist Tanja Hansen will contribute an oral presentation entitled "New concepts in inhalation toxicology: the in-vitro approach".

    Training course: In-silico toxicology

    This training course will introduce the participants to three different in-silico approaches for estimation of human health toxicological endpoints, namely QSAR models, read-across, and the TTC (threshold of toxicological concern) concept. The application of in-silico approaches in ecotoxicology will not be addressed in this course.
