CAAT Training Course: In Vitro Tools for Assessing EDC, Amsterdam (NL)

Thursday, September 7, 2017 to Friday, September 8, 2017

Includes a 2 day extensive hands-on training on how to use a panel of standardized stable human- and yeast reporter cell lines for rapid screening of hazards of pure chemicals and complex mixtures on multiple adverse outcome pathways. This includes those pathways prioritized in the current regulatory context of EDC assessment, including interference with estrogen-, androgen-, and thyroid hormone signaling. This will include assessment of metabolic conversions (S9, metabolically competent liver cells - BIOPREDIC ) of EDCs using various approaches and assessment of their effects on steroidogenesis.
