The next Modelling Training School funded under FP7 project QNano will take place on the 27th March 2013 at the Edinburgh Training & Conference Venue (ETCV), St. Mary’s Street, Edinburgh, UK. The school is free to attend and a limited number of attendance spaces remain available.
Aimed at researchers from all backgrounds and career stages with an interest in learning how to use modelling tools to predict the safety of nanomaterials, the training school will provide participants with training on the use of models in three core areas:
Modelling of dose-response relationship (in vitro/in vivo);
Extrapolation of Exposure-Dose-Response relationship from in vitro/in vivo/humans; and
Quantitative-Structure-Activity-Relationship (QSAR) models.
The school will consist of lectures from experts in these fields - namely Prof. Lang Tran & Dr. Laura MacCalman, Institute of Occupational Medicine (IOM), and Prof. Xue Wang, University of Leeds - accompanied by interactive sessions in which participants will be provided with a demonstration of some of the modelling tools and given the opportunity to work on ‘hands-on’ case examples.
A provisional agenda for the school, as well as information on the venue and special-rate accommodation, is available in the training school brochure [pdf]. Registration remains open, with a deadline of the 8th March 2013. Interested parties are invited to complete the online application form. If you have any questions regarding the training school, please contact Sheona read, IOM.
