Upcoming Class in Baltimore: Revolution in Toxicology 101

February 24-25, 2015
Mt Washington Conference Center
5801 Smith Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21209


Toxicology is undergoing revolutionary change in the early 21st century.

It’s not easy, however, to achieve an overview of these changes. Consider, for instance:

What’s the difference between TT21c, Tox21, Tox-21c, and EDSP21?
What is the difference between an AOP and a PoT?
What distinguishes ToxCast from the Human Toxome or the Human Toxicology Project Consortium?
What is ITS compared to IATA?
When is a review systematic and a conclusion evidence-based?
We are offering a unique opportunity to learn in a classroom setting from people closely involved in implementing these changes. Give us 28 hours of your time and you will leave with a comprehensive understanding of the rapidly changing field of safety sciences.

You will learn from experts at the leading edge of toxicology:

Mel Andersen, The Hamner Institute
David Dix, EPA
Thomas Hartung, Johns Hopkins
Martin Stephens, Johns Hopkins
