  • Fraunhofer ITEM, Nikolai-Fuchs-Str. 1, 30625 Hannover, Germany / February 20, 2023 - February 22, 2023, start at 1:30 p.m. on February 20, end at 2:00 p.m. on February 22 (CET)

    Training course: In-silico toxicology

    This training course will introduce the participants to 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 training will also outline the basic principles of physiologically based kinetic (PBK) modeling, whereas the application of in-silico approaches in ecotoxicology will not be addressed in this course.

    Training title: In-silico models and other relevant modeling approaches

    This e-learning package will introduce participants to the main principles of different structure-based in-silico approaches for estimation of mainly human health toxicological endpoints. The application of in-silico approaches in ecotoxicology will not be addressed in this course.

    Training title: The risk-benefit assessment framework

    Risk-benefit assessment (RBA) of foods is a decision-support tool that assesses the combined beneficial and adverse health effects of foods, diets or food components. It integrates knowledge on nutrition, toxicology, microbiology, and human epidemiology for comprehensive health impact assessments. RBA is thus useful to inform food safety policies or to provide dietary advice based on an integration of the available scientific knowledge. This e-learning provides an introduction to risk-benefit assessment of foods, with an emphasis on methods to quantify the human health impact of food intake.

    Training title: General course – uncertainty

    As part of EFSA’s commitment to transparency, identifying and characterizing uncertainties and explaining their implications for assessment conclusions is an important element of EFSA’s risk assessment process. The EFSA guidance on uncertainty analysis in scientific assessments brings more clarity on how it can be performed in a structured, transparent and unambiguous way. This online tutorial will enhance the understanding and enable the practical implementation of the guidance document on uncertainty analysis in scientific assessments.
