The Gordon Research Conference on Cellular and Molecular Mechanisms of Toxicity will be taking place in New Hampshire, USA, August 8-14, 2015. The conference is a premier forum for showcasing the latest, most innovative advances in mechanistic toxicological research. Emerging technologies in mechanistic toxicology and computational, 3D, and in vivo modeling as well as systems biology approaches to assessing risk to human disease will be highlighted.
Session Topics include:
- Keynote Session: Mechanistic and Personalized Approaches to Evaluating Toxicity and the Microbiome
- What’s in Your Toolbox: Emerging Technologies for Mechanistic Toxicology / Late Breaking Talks
- Computational Models in Toxicology
- Incorporating the Inflammasome into Mechanistic Toxicology Research / Late Breaking Talks
- What’s in Your Toolbox: Novel In Vivo Model Systems in Mechanistic Toxicology
- Systems Pharmacology Approaches to Mechanisms of Drug Efficacy and Toxicity / Late Breaking Talks
- Generational Considerations in Toxicological Sciences
- Microphysiological Systems or Animals? The Present and Future of Safety and Efficacy Testing / Late Breaking Talks
- Keynote Session: Genetic and Epigenetic Mechanisms of Toxicology / Communicating Science and Risk
***Furthermore, applicants are sought for travel fellowships to attend this conference. These fellowships are intended to enhance the career progression of early career scientists and are open to all applicants based in Europe who are either working towards or up to 10 years post PhD. Advanced undergraduate students with current research related to molecular toxicology will also be considered for this fellowship. Successful applicants will receive up to 850EU travel support from EUROTOX and assistance with registration/accommodation from the GRC Conference. Winners will be selected on the scientific quality and relevance of the proposed abstract together with the likely benefit of the award to the individual’s career development as a European Toxicologist. Some abstracts may be selected for oral presentation.
