55th Congress of the European Societies of Toxicology - Science Providing Solutions - Catch up with PATROLS at EuroTox 2019 in Helsinki, Finland 8 - 11 September 2019.

8 - 11 September 2019, Helsinki, Finland

The Finish Society of Toxicology (FST) is excited about organizing the congress EUROTOX 2019 in Helsinki, the capital of Finland. The congress will take place from September 8th to 11th. The venue is Finlandia Hall, a building full of European history and at the same time a modern and a highly sophisticated venue even for the most demanding conference delegate.

The EUROTOX2019 Scientific Programme Committee, chaired by Prof. H. Wallace, has prepared an exciting scientific programme, highlighting the latest research results and trends in the field of toxicology.
Programme Highlights


  • CEC1 Development and Evaluation of AOPs
  • CEC2 Application and Integration of Increasingly Mechanistically Driven Tools for Risk Assessment
  • CEC3 The pre-specified protocol part of evidence-based assessment in toxicology
  • CEC4 Real world safety assessments for data-poor products: How to approach data gaps
  • CEC5 Dietary exposure assessment
  • CEC6 Determining safe exposure limits in occupational toxicology, application to pharmaceuticals
