9th International Conference on Nanotoxicology
Since Miami 2006 a sequence of 8 international conferences have been held at international locations such as Zurich, Edinburgh, Beijing or Boston. On behalf of the organising committee we would be very happy to welcome you to the next event in this series of very important international conferences on the toxicology of nanomaterials. The conference venue will be located in Neuss, near Duesseldorf. It is well connected via the airports of Duesseldorf, Cologne-Bonn and Frankfurt, from where a fast train takes you to the conference site (ICE). Neuss is part of the so-called “Ruhrgebiet” the biggest industrial area in Europe. Nevertheless, the hotel is surrounded by small woods and parks and the “Old Town of Duesseldorf” with its famous breweries and restaurants is only a few minutes away.
More than 10 years have been gone since the first conference, so it will be the time to contemplate about the outcome of the research of the last decade. We should discuss the question 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 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. Join the Nanotox community!
The special focus of NanoTox 2018 will be “New tools in risk assessment of nanomaterials” such as read-across, grouping and categorization.
