Advancing Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) Development for Nanomaterial Risk Assessment and PATROLS Stakeholders Workshop
Date: September 11-12, 2019
Location: OECD Conference Centre, Paris
Vireo Advisors is collaborating with Health Canada and two European Horizon2020 projects to coordinate two back-to-back workshops at the OECD:
“Advancing Adverse Outcome Pathway (NanoAOP) Development for Nanomaterial Risk Assessment and Categorization” (NanoAOP Workshop)(11 September 2019)
This workshop will feature presentations and discussions on three related projects:
1)An OECD WPMN project developing a case study to examine how the nanotoxicology literature can be used to identify key events relevant for manufactured nanomaterials. The case study and a recently published article from Halappanavar et al. describe an approach to advance the development of AOPs for nanomaterials using existing nanotoxicology literature.
2)The EU H2020 SmartNanoTox project. SmartNanoTox is using in vivo, in vitro and in silico research to develop nanomaterial-relevant AOPs in the respiratory pathway.
3)The EU H2020 PATROLS project. PATROLS is developing non-animal (in vitro) models and computational tools targeting the key events in established AOPs.
2. Stakeholder workshop organized by the EU H2020 Project Physiologically Anchored Tools for Realistic nanOmateriaL hazard aSsessment (PATROLS ) (12 September 2019)
To express an interest in attending either workshop, please email James Ede at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 August 2019.
