ICH M7 applications for drug impurities and extractables & leachables
This course is for attendees who have either attended our "Understanding QSAR and read-across" course or who are already familiar with the theory of (Q)SAR. This course is video-streamed although on-site, company specific courses can be requested.
Mutagenicity assessment in drug impurities and Extractables & Leachables
The course covers the applications of in silico methods used for mutagenicity for drug impurities and extractables and leachables. It is ideal for analytical and process chemists who would like to learn more about mutagenicity assessments or toxicologists starting to learn about in silico toxicology.
4 hours split into two sessions run over two consecutive days. The aim of the course is to familiarize with the the attendee in a practical way by use of examples and exercises.
10:00 - 12:00 GMT (UK) every day on:
30th and 31st March 2021
Early bird registration fee: £280 + VAT (deadline 2 week before chosen course)
Full registration fee: £350 + VAT
Breaking down the whole course into two short sessions over consecutive days allows you to consolidate what you have learned before the next session and to better elaborate questions.
In addition to the attendance on the live streaming, you receive a copy of the recording for your personal use and all the material related to the course. Finally, the trainer is available at any time during the session or shortly afterwards to answer your course-related questions. A certificate of attendance is also available upon request.
Optimal involvement and interactions between the trainer and the trainees are ensured by limiting the number of attendees to 5 per class. The trainees are encouraged to interact, ask and answer questions with the other trainees and trainer.
The trainer, Dr. Elena Fioravanzo, is a qualified chemist and a well-recognized scientific investigator in computational chemistry and computational toxicology. She has more than 20 years of experience as a consultant and in providing training on approaches and on specific software.
