In silico tools in chemical’s hazard assessments    Back

CAAT Academy Course Type: Short courses (CPD) Start Date: To be announced
Duration: Full time - 2 Days Fees/total cost: EUR 590.00


In light of the limitations of existing non-animal based hazard assessment methodologies, particularly in the area of repeated dose as well as developmental and reproductive toxicity, readacross is currently considered to be the most applicable strategy in support of chemical’s hazard assessment. In this context, in silico tools play a critical role in identifying and justifying analogues suitable for the assessment of chemicals for which hazard data are lacking. This training is designed to give the necessary background along with tailored case studies to provide hands-on experience how in silico tools can be used in supporting a chemical’s hazard assessments: for example as stand-alone tools or for the identification and justification of analogues for use in read-across.
