The topic of this congress, “Bridging Sciences for Safety”, upholds the important role of Toxicology in bridging the knowledge of sciences like Biology, Chemistry, Pharmacology, Physiology, and many others, for the desired path of humankind towards a safer world. EUROTOX is the Federation of national societies of toxicology in Europe, which together have approximately 7,000 members. In addition, EUROTOX counts more than 200 individual members coming from 50 countries, mostly from Western Europe.
As such, the EUROTOX Annual Congress certainly represents a unique occasion to participate in the most important regular event of Toxicology in Europe and one of the most relevant in the world. It provides excellent opportunities for meeting delegates from all over the world, and is a privileged stage for exchanging ideas and experiences among colleagues and friends, establishing and reinforcing scientific networks, and learning the forefront scientific developments from distinguished scientists, opening minds for new concepts and paradigms in Toxicology and related sciences.
The Continuing Education Courses (CEC) held on the first day of the meeting are additional strong reasons to attend the 2015 EUROTOX Congress. Well-acknowledged scientists offer cutting-edge courses on dominant subjects of Toxicology, such as 3R methods in Toxicology, new recreational drugs, thresholds of toxicological concern, hazard characterization, co-exposure risk assessment, and risk assessment in food safety. CECs are usually well attended, not only by young researchers but also by teachers aiming to upgrade knowledge and skills
