The Tox21 Data Challenge 2014 will "crowdsource" data analysis by
independent researchers to reveal how well they can predict compounds'
interference in biochemical pathways using only chemical structure data.
The Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods
(SACATM) will meet Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at the National Institute
of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in Research Triangle Park, NC.
Green Toxicology Workshop on October 23, 2014, Empa, Dübendorf, Switzerland. Green toxicology is the application of predictive toxicology to the production of chemicals with the specific intent of improving their design for hazard reduction.
Attention veterinarians, lab technicians, animal technicians, and all who work with laboratory animals: CAAT now is accepting proposals for the 2015 Science-based Refinement Awards (formerly the Animal Welfare Enhancement Awards).
Eurogroup for Animals, which has been recognized by the European Parliament and Commission as the leading animal welfare organization in the EU, has awarded CAAT the award Partner Raising Standards for Animal Welfare.
