10th Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences

19 julio 2017

10th Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences

We are pleased to invite you to the 10th World Congress on Alternatives and Animals in the Life Sciences (WC10), which will be held on 20-24 August 2017 in Seattle, Washington, USA. The theme for this Congress is “The Three Rs in Action.”

WC10 promises to be a cutting edge scientific meeting with emphasis on the latest technologies for reduction and replacement of animals and innovations in approaches to ethics, animal welfare and public policy. Its placement in Seattle offers a broader reach to countries in Asia that are strengthening their focus on the Three Rs. The occurrence of the 10th in a series of World Congresses in the area of Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences is a milestone and correlates with the 10th anniversary of the National Research Council report on Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century – A Vision and a Strategy – a perfect occasion to take stock on our progress.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle in 2017!

Elaine Faustman, Robert Kavlock and Joanne Zurlo
Congress Co-chairs

12th International Comet Assay Workshop (ICAW 2017)

3 julio 2017

12th International Comet Assay Workshop (ICAW 2017)

The International Comet Assay Workshops are a series of scientific conferences dealing with practical and theoretical aspects of the Comet Assay, aimed at both experienced and new users of this popular technique. The Workshop has always been rather informal. It began as a satellite to the 2nd International Conference on Environmental Mutagens in 1995. At that time, the Comet Assay community was small, and we mostly knew each other. Even now, following exponential growth in popularity of this assay, the workshop retains the feeling of an extended family, reunited every two years, with a healthy intake of new family members. We try to keep registration costs as low as possible to make it easier for less established researchers to attend, and as a matter of policy no-one has expenses refunded; there are no invited speakers. All are equal, and the newest recruits can readily share ideas with the old-timers.

The first five meetings in this series were called simply ‘Comet Assay Workshops’. ‘International’ was added in 2005. So far, all have been held in Europe, which perhaps reflects the fact that, while the Comet Assay has mixed North American/European parentage, more users of the assay are in Europe than anywhere else, and many innovations and new applications have come from Europe.

The programme will include oral and poster presentations depicting the highlights of the past, the present and especially the future of the Comet Assay; discussing the latest advances in the development and application of the Comet Assay. Different applications are discussed, including: genotoxicity testing, human biomonitoring, DNA repair studies, environmental biomonitoring and clinical studies. The programme will also include an open discussion session to exchange thoughts about practical issues and the latest innovations. This will encourage the exchange of information between specialists from both the academic and industrial sectors.

ICAW2017 will be joined with a hCOMET meeting organised and supported by COST.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Pamplona at the 12th International Comet Assay Workshop hosted by the University of Navarra.

XXII Congreso Español de Toxicología y VI Iberoamericano

Mi sincero agradecimiento a las Presidentas del Congreso, Dras. Guillermina Font y María José Ruiz, y al conjunto de colaboradores que nos han hecho disfrutar de un amigable y grato evento. Deseo destacar la amabilidad de Ana Juan García y Lara Manyes.

Las conferencias, mesas redondas y secciones se han desarrollado con un alta calidad científica y el conjunto de presentaciones orales cortas y los carteles han tenido también una calidad científica destacada y una excelente calidad estética, que animaba a verlos y revisarlos en cada una de las secciones: Educación, Métodos Alternativos, Toxicología Experimental, Forense, Clínica, Ambiental y Veterinaria, y Sseguridad Alimantaria. Los resúmenes de las participaciones están recogidos en el número de la Revista de Toxicología volumen 34 Número 1 de 2017.

Deseo felicitar a los coordinadores de las Secciones por haber preparado Mesas Redondas y secciones de máximo interés, invitando a destacados expertos en los temas desarrollados. Deseo hacer mención a la presencia del Dr. Manuel Repetto Jiménez, Presidente de Honor de la AETOX, que ha participado activamente en el Congreso.

Deseo de nuevo felicitar a toda la organización y espero y deseo poder tener la oportunidad de disfrutar plenamente el XXIII Congreso, que se celebrará en Sevilla en 2019.
