Contributor: Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM
ICCVAM will present its second Communities of Practice webinar on Jan. 26, 2016, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. The webinar, on “Fundamentals of Using Quantitative Structure–Activity Relationship Models and Read-across Techniques in Predictive Toxicology,” is being organized on behalf of ICCVAM by NICEATM and hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) National Center for Computational Toxicology.
The webinar will feature presentations by two experts in the development and application of quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) models and read-across techniques. Alex Tropsha, Ph.D., associate dean for pharmacoinformatics and data science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will discuss fundamentals of QSAR models. Louis (Gino) Scarano, Ph.D., of the EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, will describe read-across techniques and discuss the regulatory applications of QSAR models and read-across techniques.
