2020 Training on QSAR and Read-across in London
If you wish to improve your understanding of QSAR and read-across for regulatory toxicology, join our training course specifically tailored to help you to interpret the meaning of in silico predictions increasing the probability of acceptance of predictions for regulatory use.
The tutors are well known experts and professionals in this field. Prof. Mark Cronin has more than 250 publications and four books in the application of in silico approaches to predicting the toxicity and fate of chemicals, he is involved in activities towards the development of the OECD (Q)SAR Application Toolbox and he is the co-ordinator of the COSMOS DataShare Initiative. Dr Judith Madden, Reader at Liverpool John Moores University, she has over 20 years’ experience of teaching, on both undergraduate and postgraduate university courses, as well as a wide range of external courses designed to meet the needs of those from academia, industry and the regulatory sector. Her research also encompasses prediction of absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination (ADME) properties. Dr Elena Fioravanzo, a chemist with more than 20 years of experience as a consultant in the use of computational methods to understand properties of small molecules in drug discovery, drug development and chemical risk assessment.
Two days are dedicated to help you to increase your understanding of the scientific basis of (Q)SAR and read-across. We shall have some fun together doing practical exercises to choose the best suited method or model for your specific application, to evaluate the validation of different models, to combine different lines of evidence into an in silico final call, to discuss together learning from each other's experience.
And if you want also to learn how to use some computational toxicology software, join the optional hands-on session. We shall use QSAR software for regulatory toxicology such as ToxTree, ToxGPS, ACD/Name, ACD/Percepta, ChemSpider, OChem, tools for finding data for source and target compounds such as COSMOS DB, OECD Toolbox and software to support read-across such as OECD Toolbox and ToxGPS.
We offer special discount for an early registration.
