Recently published books in the Issues in Toxicology Series:

You can read the first chapter for free through your Personal RSC Publishing Account


Manganese in Health and Disease: Editor(s): Lucio Costa, Michael Aschner

Manganese in Health and Disease

Lucio Costa (Editor), Michael Aschner (Editor)

ISBN: 978-1-84973-943-6

The book comprehensively covers the toxicology of manganese. Leading investigators provide perspectives from toxicology, neuroscience, nutrition, molecular biology and risk assessment disciplines and chapters cover the toxicokinetics, toxicodynamic interactions and health effects of manganese, as well as its potential role in neurodegenerative diseases.

Metabolic Profiling : Disease and Xenobiotics. Editor: Martin Grootveld

Metabolic Profiling: Disease and Xenobiotics

Martin Grootveld (Editor)

ISBN: 978-1-84973-163-8

Multivariate analysis of the multi-component analytical profiles of carefully collected biofluid and/or tissue biopsy specimens can provide a ‘fingerprint’ of their biomolecular/metabolic status. This exemplary new book highlights applications of these techniques in the areas of drug therapy and toxicology, cancer, obesity and diabetes, as well as outlining applications to cardiovascular, infectious, inflammatory and oral diseases in detail.

EUROTOX 2014 conference

Professors Heather Wallace and Arstidis Tsatsakis at the Closing Ceremony of EUROTOX 2014

Professors Heather Wallace and Aristidis Tsatsakis at the Closing Ceremony of EUROTOX 2014

The 50th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology (EUROTOX 2014) was held in Edinburgh this September. The Conference was presided by Professor Heather Wallace (Toxicology Research Editorial Board member) had an exciting programme with keynote lectures from Professor Roland Wolf and Professor Allister Vale, plenary lectures, symposia and workshops. In addition, there were state-of-the-art interactive poster sessions on large screens which were very popular with the delegates.

Toxicology Research was delighted to sponsor a poster prize at the event which was awarded to Katharina Dach (pictured right) from IUF Leibniz Institute for Environmental Medicine, Dusseldorf, Germany for her poster entitled ”Of mice and men: Mechanistic studies on the developmental neurotoxicity of polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PDBEs) in a 3D in vitro model”. Many congratulations to Katharina on receiving this prize.

Preparations for the 2015 event in Porto, Portugal, are already well underway. More details can be found on the website: http://eurotox2015.com/

Alan Boobis delivers Royal Society of Chemistry Toxicology Award Lecture

Toxicology Research Advisory Board member Professor Alan Boobis received the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Toxicology Award earlier this year, giving his lecture at the Toxicology Award Symposium in May in London. Professor Boobis received the award for his work on the human metabolism of carcinogens and his extensive involvement in scientific committees for the UK Government, the European Commission and internationally. You can view his full lecture below.





Other lectures from the day can be viewed on the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Toxicology Group Symposium page (note that you can also view Professor Boobis’s lecture there if the above video does not play in your browser), and you can find out more about the group’s work and activities on their pages.
