September 17 – from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm

Teacher: Chiara Marelli


This training course will introduce participants to various in-silico methods for estimating human health toxicological endpoints, including QSAR models and read-across techniques. The course is designed for participants with limited knowledge on the topic and that are approaching them for the first time.

This training will provide you with the basic knowledge on how to use models and read-across techniques to retrieve toxicological information. You will learn about the basic characteristics and functions of some tools with free access.
