Actions and Detail Panel
In Vitro Skin & Eye models - Part 1
Thu, Jun 1, 2017, 9:00 AM – Fri, Jun 2, 2017, 5:30 PM CEST
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 (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).
Draft agenda is available here.
More topics for 2017 are available under the organizer name CAAT Academy

What's the refund and cancellation policy?
Refunds are available only if VUB or CAAT Academy cancels the event. This is stated on the participant’s receipt once registered. However, in case the participant is not able to attend the event, the participant can transfer the training access to a colleague without any additional fee.
Do I actually manipulate in the lab?
Each hands-on training is scheduled to last for 2-Days. In these two days, the hands-on trainings encompass 20% Lectures and 80% Laboratory practices. In other words, for about more than a day and a half of the trainings each participant will able to actively manipulate in the laboratory in small groups of 3-4 people. Therefore, some preliminary knowledge for cell culture in the lab is mandatory.
What is the difference between “private” sector and “non-private” sector?
The participant must choose the "private” sector in case his/her organization has any commercial activities e.g. selling products or services to third parties.
