Edinburgh, UK | Posted on February 13th, 2013

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:

i) Modelling of dose-response relationship (in vitro/in vivo);

ii) Extrapolation of Exposure-Dose-Response relationship from in vitro/in vivo/humans; and

iii) 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 ( ).

About QNano

QNano is a Research Infrastructure for nanosafety assessment. QNano’s core aim is the creation of a ‘neutral’ scientific and technical space in which all stakeholder groups can engage, develop, and share scientific best practice in the field. Initially it will harness resources from across Europe and develop efficient, transparent and effective processes. Thereby it will enable provision of services to its users, and the broader community, all in the context of a best-practice ethos. This will encourage evidence-based dialogue to prosper between all stakeholders. However, QNano will also pro-actively seek to drive, develop and promote the highest quality research and practices via its Joint Research Activities (JRA), Networking Activities (NA) and provision of Transnational Access (TA) functions, with a global perspective and mode of implementation. Further information about QNANO can be found on the project website.
