Practical Application of Toxicology in Drug Development Course
The Practical Application of Toxicology in Drug Discovery Course is co-organised by the American College of Toxicology (ACT), the British Society of Toxicology (BTS), and the University of Cambridge (Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences-CATS) and is supported by Charles River Laboratories.
The course is recognised by EUROTOX as providing 37 hours of CPD and approved by the Royal Society of Biology for 96 CPD credits.
This highly acclaimed course will provide training in toxicology as applied in drug development to scientists from all parts of the world. Participants will obtain an overall understanding of the principles of non-clinical safety evaluation with an emphasis on the practical application of these principles and the interpretation of non-clinical safety data. Regulatory toxicology in drug development will be emphasised, from both a European and a US perspective.
The course is intended to benefit those from both biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies as well as CROs working with either small or large molecules, along with those from regulatory agencies and academia who are interested in toxicology and its application in the safety assessment of drugs and medical products. Early career scientists seeking a more in-depth knowledge and understanding of the role of toxicology in safety assessment will also benefit. The course is suitable for scientists trained in ancillary disciplines (such as chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine, etc.) looking to make a career change to work in drug safety assessment.
