15th International Congress on In Vitro Toxicology

19 mayo 2008

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to the Congress ESTIV2008, the 15th International Congress on In Vitro Toxicology which will be held in a unique environment in the Stockholm archipelago, Sweden, September 25-28, 2008. The congress is a joint venture organised by ESTIV (European Society of Toxicology In Vitro), SSCT (Scandinavian Society for Cell Toxicology) and Expertrådet ECB Environmental Competence Ltd.

We are happy to inform you, that the interest for developing and using non-animal (in vitro) methods for toxicity testing has increased the last couple of years and the former INVITOX, held every second year, have been upgraded to ESTIV Congress, since “workshop” does no longer properly describe the size of these meetings. INVITOX Workshops have had an outstanding tradition of bringing together junior and senior researchers, involved in the development and use of in vitro methods and the ESTIV Congress will continue to do that.

Invitación a la RITSQ

14 mayo 2008

Se publica a continuación la carta enviada el 7 de mayo por la Dra. María Fernanda Cavieres a colegas toxicólogos de Latinoamérica:

Estimados Colegas Toxicólogos de Latinoamérica
¡Un gran saludo a todos!

Desde el año 2006 se ha desarrollado la Red Iberoamericana de Toxicología y Seguridad Química (RITSQ), acogida hasta recientemente en la página del Comité Español de Toxicología. Actualmente RITSQ tiene página propia (www.ritsq.org) y cuenta con un total de 265 personas registradas. Somos muchos los colegas que deseamos que RITSQ se siga comportando como una vía de comunicación perfecta para el desarrollo de la Toxicología y para ello se ha creado esta nueva página presentada como blog y que ha sido coordinada desde España por el Dr. Eduardo de la Peña de Torres y el MSc Oscar Herrero Felipe. La nueva página cuenta con un apartado de congresos, reniones y actividades que queda abierto y ofrecemos a todos las personas que deseen anunciar cualquier tipo de evento relacionado con la Toxicología (cursos, congresos, seminarios, jornadas, reuniones, edición de libros y CDs, etc..).

Master on Environmental Contamination and Toxicology

12 mayo 2008

Dear Colleagues, Dear Students

The Institute of Biomedical Sciences of Abel Salazar and the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto, Portugal, are offering a Master on Environmental Contamination and Toxicology. Participants may be colleagues having a first degree in Biology, Environmental Sciences, Biochemistry, Chemistry or any other area within life sciences. Therefore, I am asking your cooperation in the dissemination of the Master among potentially interested students.

Spanish students will be most welcome! Lectures will be in Portuguese, Spanish, “Portunhol” (a mixture of Portuguese and Spanish) or English according the language of the participants. More detailed information is enclosed in a pdf file, sorry for being in Portuguese.

The submission of applications starts at the beginning of June and can be performed by internet (website: www.icbas.up.pt).

Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer grants. However, we can help in getting funding support (recommendation letters) from national or international organizations.

Looking forward hearing from you,

Lúcia Guilhermino
Full Professor of the
Institute of Biomedical Sciences of Abel Salazar
University of Porto, Portugal
Coordinator of the Master
