Graham, Ed and I attended the SETAC Europe Conference in Milan last week. We’re sustaining members of SETAC Europe and, as always, it was nice to catch up with friends and colleagues at our stand, meet new people and attend some interesting sessions. I was particularly interested in the projects that were trying to raise the profile and usefulness of QSAR and in silico methods for chemical risk assessment, such as the EU funded Orchestra Project.
We presented a series of posters across several sessions which we hoped would capture some of the work we’ve been involved with in the last year or so. Some of these posters were also featured as either “poster spotlights” during plenary sessions, or as part of “poster corner” discussions. The poster describing the bio-met project was produced in collaboration with colleagues at ARCHE. Copies of these posters (as pdfs) are available to download using the links below. If you have any questions, or would like any more information please get in touch.
