The EUROTOX2019 Scientific Programme Committee, chaired by Prof. H. Wallace, has prepared an exciting scientific programme, highlighting the latest research results and trends in the field of toxicology.

Programme Highlights

CEC1 Development and Evaluation of AOPs
CEC2 Application and Integration of Increasingly Mechanistically Driven Tools for Risk Assessment
CEC3 The pre-specified protocol part of evidence-based assessment in toxicology
CEC4 Real world safety assessments for data-poor products: How to approach data gaps
CEC5 Dietary exposure assessment
CEC6 Determining safe exposure limits in occupational toxicology, application to pharmaceuticals

Opening Ceremony Keynote Lecture
Bo Holmstedt Memorial Fund Lecture
SOT Merit Award Lecture

Poster sessions will be held on 9 September (Poster Viewing 1) and 10 September, 2019 (Poster Viewing 2), during the official congress breaks in the Exhibition Area.

Furthermore, all accepted poster abstracts will be displayed as e-posters on-site throughout the whole congress period.
