BelTox annual scientific meeting of 2022
Announcement AM22 – SAVE THE DATE 7th December 2022
The BelTox annual scientific meeting of 2022 (AM22) will take place in the Grauwzusters chapel at the city campus of the University of Antwerp on December 7th 2022.
The theme of the meeting is “Current state of knowledge on the toxicology and ecotoxicology of PFAS”.
The meeting will be introduced by making the audience familiar with the wide variety of chemical structures of PFAS, followed by a presentation on the ecotoxicological aspects of PFAS (Lieven Bervoets, University of Antwerp) and a presentation on the toxicological aspects of PFAS (Greet Schoeters, VITO).
After the coffee break, there will be a presentation on the setting of the limit concentration of PFAS in serum, food and feed (Frans Verstraete, DG SANTE) and on the project of the Federal Agency on Occupational Risk (FEDRIS) investigating the need of continued medical surveillance of workers with extensive exposure to PFAS in industry (TBD) after retirement.
In the afternoon, there will be two contributions on toxicological research of PFAS performed by industry (Sue Chang, 3M and Shawn Gannon, Chemours).
The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion with all the speakers.
As every year, BelTox will organize during this meeting a young scientist contest for the best presentations and posters of PhD students.
The two best presentations and two best posters will receive a prize.
