ICCVAM Communities of Practice Webinar January 24
The third ICCVAM Communities of Practice webinar will be presented January 24 on the topic “Incorporating Chemical Information: Resources, Limitations, and Characterizing the Domain of Applicability for 21st Century Toxicity Testing.” This webinar is being organized on behalf of ICCVAM by NICEATM and hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Center for Computational Toxicology.
The webinar will emphasize the importance of understanding the structural and functional diversity of chemicals used in developing and validating alternative approaches to traditional in vivo toxicology test methods. It will also feature next-generation chemoinformatics techniques, which are being used to fully characterize chemical lists, and highlight case studies where such techniques have been applied successfully. The speakers are Denis Fourches, Ph.D., from the Bioinformatics Research Center at North Carolina State University and Kamel Mansouri, Ph.D., from the National Center for Computational Toxicology.
The webinar is scheduled for January 24 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern Time. It is free and open to the public, although registration is required to attend. A link to registration and more information are available on the NICEATM website.
