12th International Comet Assay Workshop (ICAW 2017)

29 octubre 2016


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.

IUTOX 2016

Queridos amigos:

Los organizadores de IUTOX Mérida 2016, atendiendo gentilmente a nuestra petición, nos han comunicado que podremos celebrar la III Reunión de la Red Iberoamericana de Toxicología y Seguridad Química, el miércoles 5 de octubre de 2016 de 12:30 a 14:00 en el salón Uxmal 7 del Centro de Convenciones.

Por ello, desde aquí invitamos a todos los asistente al Congreso IUTOX 2016 Mérida (México) a que asistan a la III Reunión RITSQ y continúen así con la tradición mantenida en IUTOX 2010 Barcelona (España) y en IUTOX 2007 Montreal (Canadá), donde se celebraron respectivamente la II y la I Reunión RITSQ.

Durante esta nueva reunión expondremos los resultados de la Encuesta sobre formación en Toxicología, realizada durante el presente año 2016. Aprovechamos la ocasión para animar a responder a dicha encuesta (descargar aquí) antes del 20 de septiembre a quienes todavía no lo hayan hecho, de manera que podamos incluir sus respuestas en los resultados anónimos que serán presentados en la reunión.

A la espera de sus respuestas y de poder verles en la III Reunión RITSQ durante el Congreso IUTOX, reciban un fuerte abrazo.
