Past Events

Second Annual Scientific Meeting of the American Society for Cellular and Computational Toxicology: The Future Is Here: Practical Applications of Emerging Scientific Tools
Human Organs on Chips as Replacements for Animal Testing, the keynote address given by Donald E. Ingber, M.D., Ph.D., of the Wyss Institute at Harvard, kicked off the meeting which featured a dozen lectures and poster presentations on making toxicology a more human-relevant science. Other topics included methods to replace live animals in eye irritation tests and computer-based virtual embryos that show how chemical exposures might affect developing embryos. View Program.

First Annual Scientific and Business Meeting of the ASCCT
The first annual ASCCT meeting focused on advances in the fields of in vitro and computational toxicology. Dr. Melvin Andersen, associate director of The Institute for Chemical Safety Sciences at The Hamner Institutes for Health Sciences and ASCCT board member, gave a plenary lecture on Computational Cellular Pathway Modeling: Combining Key In Vitro and In Silico Tools to Enhance Modern Safety Assessment. Dr. Suzanne Fitzpatrick, senior advisor for toxicology at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave a plenary lecture on an Overview of the FDA-DARPA-NIH Collaboration on Human/Organ on a Chip.

See attached program for abstracts and agenda. A podcast of the event will be coming soon. For a recording of the webinar on the topics discussed at the in-person business meeting, click here.

Institute for In Vitro Sciences Practical Methods for In Vitro Toxicology Workshop
Attendees gained hands-on laboratory experience and instruction in the practical application of the lectured topics. Topics for the three and a half day course included: (i) international regulatory acceptance status of in vitro assays, (ii) predicting organ specific toxicity (e.g., ocular, dermal and hepatic), (iii) using cell and organ culture models with histological, biochemical, and molecular endpointsm, and (iv) data interpretation.
