1–2 June CAAT Academy training, Brussels

In Vitro Skin and Eye Model – Part 1.

Register here
This practical toxicological course hosted by Prof. V. Rogiers will, thanks to a number of companies engaged in the field of 3Rs, guide you through some of the validated OECD guidelines on local toxicity testing: 3 different skin models will be used to show practical applicability either in the field of skin irritation (EpiSkin, OECD TG 439), skin sensitization (GARD®skin, SenzaGen) or skin permeability (Eurosafe). An in vitro 3D reconstructed cornea-like model developed by MatTek will be used to demonstrate its applicability for eye irritation detection (OECD TG 492).
Final agenda is available here.
