9th International Conference on Nanotoxicology

 

More than ten years have passed since the first NanoTox conference – time to summarize the research of the last decade and look ahead on what’s to come. Join the Nanotox community in 2018 and discuss where we will go within the next decade and how appropriate are the assays we use to make our decisions about hazard and exposure of nanomaterials.

The special focus of NanoTox 2018 will be “New tools in risk assessment of nanomaterials” such as read-across, grouping and categorization.

The key issue for the future is the reliability of risk assessment based on the available data. This event will offer a platform for all interested scientists, industry partners and regulatory bodies to discuss the latest results and developments in nanosafety research.

NanoTox 2018 will take place in Neuss, near Duesseldorf near the so-called “Ruhrgebiet”. Inspired by the biggest industrial area in Europe and yet enjoying the atmosphere o the “Old Town of Duesseldorf” with its famous breweries and restaurants, the conference will offer once again a great atmosphere for discussion, scientific exchange and sharing ideas to ensure the further progress in NanoTox.

 

The organisers

Harald F. Krug, NanoCASE, Switzerland
Katja Nau, KIT, Germany
Matthias Neumann, DECHEMA, Germany
Christoph Steinbach, DECHEMA, Germany
are looking forward to meeting you!
