Regional Meetings

2018 SPS EUROPEAN REGIONAL MEETING

The Safety Pharmacology Society European regional meeting, Safety Pharmacology Meets Toxicology, will be held at the UCB BioPharma site in Braine-l’Alleud, Belgium on September 6, 2018, immediately after Eurotox that will take place in Brussels, one step away from UCB BioPharma.

Toxicologists, do not miss this chance to interact with the safety pharmacology community and deepen your knowledge of this discipline; Safety pharmacologists, do not miss this unique opportunity for open discussion with toxicologists and to network with your colleagues!

Amongst others, presentations will cover the integration of safety pharmacology parameters in toxicology studies, including case examples. The concept of adversity (i.e. NOAEL) related to safety pharmacology parameters will then be addressed with a panel discussion on this topic to close the day.

We encourage attendees to bring posters, including those that may have been presented at previous meetings. To submit a poster for presentation, please contact Marie-Luce Brodzinski-Rosseels.
