Toxicology Research were delighted to sponsor a poster prize at the British Toxicology Society Annual Congress, which took place from the 28th to 29th April 2014 at Plaisterers’ Hall, London. Many congratulations to Tim Allen (University of Cambridge) for winning this prize with his poster entitiled: “Towards an MIE atlas“.

Tim’s research involes using chemistry to probe molecular interactions between toxicants and biological systems. “We are trying to find out what it is about these molecules that makes them toxic, be that chemical structure, reactivity or physical properties. By gaining understanding of these molecular initiating events (MIEs) we hope to develop tools to screen novel chemicals against in early stage toxicity testing.” explains Tim.

Many congratulations to Tim on receiving this prize.

IBAMTOX – meet our Advisory Board Member Professor Joao Rocha

IBAMTOX

The second Ibero-American Meeting on Toxicology and Environmental Health (IBAMTOX) is being held in Ribeirão Preto, Brazil from the 17th-19th of June.  This event provides students and professionals within the field from across Brazil and the wider scientific community the opportunity to discuss key issues within toxicology and environmental health.  It also facilitates the chance to develop new connections and possibilities for collaborations.

This year’s IBAMTOX focuses primarily on pollution and its health effects, biomonitoring, toxicology, ecotoxicology, reproductive technology, environmental and food contaminants, toxicological and environmental challenges and relevant legislation.  For those attending, the event will no doubt prove to be invaluable.

Professor Rocha

Professor João Rocha, one of the board members for Toxicology Research, will be presenting as a key note speaker during Symposium 5 at 2pm on the 18th of June.  Professor Rocha received his B.S degree in Biology at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil in 1987 and he went on to receive his Ph.D. under the direction of Professor D.O. Souza in 1996.

Professor Rocha joined the Chemistry department at the Federal University of Santa Maria, RS, Brazil in 1986 and is currently a professor of Biology at the University.  In 1997, Professor Rocha received a CNPq post-doctoral fellowship to work with Professor L.D. Meis at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

Professor Rocha’s current research focuses on the development of new in vitro and in vivo methods to test the toxicology and potential therapeutic use of simple organochalcogenes.  The toxicity studies are centred on the reactivity of thiol-containing low weight molecular compounds and proteins, such as ALA-D and LDH, with Selenium and Tellurium organocompounds.  The potential antioxidant activities of organocalcogenides and their interaction with mercurials are also tested in the experimental methods.

If you wish to contact Professor Rocha during the conference, please feel free to email him.

Why not read Professor João Rocha’s recent review article in Toxicology Research:

Aminolevulinate dehydratase (δ-ALA-D) as marker protein of intoxication with metals and other pro-oxidant situations
Joao B. T. Rocha, Rogerio A. Saraiva, Solange C. Garcia, Fernanda S. Gravina and Cristina W. Nogueira
