Practical Application of Toxicology in Drug Development 2019


Co-organized by the British Toxicology Society and the American College of Toxicology with support from Charles River Laboratories


Early Bird Registration deadline is June 1, 2019

This highly acclaimed course will provide training in toxicology as applied in drug development to scientists from all parts of the world. Participants will obtain an overall understanding of the principles of nonclinical safety evaluation with emphasis on the practical application of these principles and interpretation of nonclinical safety data. Regulatory toxicology in drug development will be emphasised, from both a European and a US perspective. Through the week the students will participate in tutored group study of regulatory cases and original data from a regulatory submission which will conclude with a half-day workshop.

The course is intended to benefit individuals from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies and CROs working with either small or large molecules, along with those from regulatory agencies and academia who are interested in toxicology and its application in safety assessment of drugs and medical products. Early career scientists seeking more in-depth knowledge and understanding of the role of toxicology in safety assessment will benefit. It is suitable for scientists trained in ancillary disciplines (such as chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine, etc.) making a career change to work in drug safety assessment.

Approved by the Royal Society of Biology for 96 CPD credits. Application has been made to EUROTOX for continued recognition of the course for CPD.
