International Workshop Virtual Lab Training Innovative Method for Evaluating Pulmonary Toxicicity

The “International workshop of innovative methods for evaluating pulmonary toxicity” aims to contextualize and update researchers, students, regulators and toxicologists about the most recent advances in lung toxicity evaluation. The program comprises discussions about physiologically relevant models applied for inhalation/pulmonary toxicity assessment regarding both scientific and regulatory scenarios, as well as the potentiality for innovation in the drug discovery process.

The event will occur in virtual format on the 8th of June, from 8:50 to 12:40 AM (Brazilian time – GMT -3) and registration will be accepted until the 5th of June, more information click on this link Eventos | sbtox.
