Event Highlight

The European Regulatory Toxicology Conference: The Regulatory Acceptance of Alternatives to Animal Testing is taking place at St Anne’s College, Oxford, UK on Tuesday 24 May 2016.

The conference will have specific focus on the regulatory acceptance of alternatives to animal testing. With the move in the EU Regulatory Environment to animal testing being the action of last resort, this is sure to be an informative event and an area of interest for everyone involved in chemicals, biocides or agrochemical registration.

Topics and speakers include:
An overview of animal test alternatives (history and current status)
Fiona Sewell (NC3R)

3Rs in Regulatory Toxicology Testing of Agrochemicals
Dr. Manoj Aggarwal (Dow AgroSciences Ltd)

Skin sensitisation
Dr. Naveed Honarvar (BASF)

Genetic Toxicology: in vitro methods and testing strategies
Carol Beevers (Covance)

The regulatory impact of novel approaches to the assessment of carcinogenicity
Professor Gareth Jenkins (University of Swansea)

Professor Mark Cronin (Liverpool John Moores University)

MOA, absorption, metabolism in vitro methods
Dr. Nick Plant (University of Surrey)

The future for replacing animals in regulatory tests
Katy Taylor (Cruelty Free International)

There will be plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues and speakers and it will appeal to all stakeholders in the regulatory field from active substance manufacturers, formulating and retailing companies, regulatory authorities and the full range of service companies (law firms, consultants, laboratory service providers).
