In Vitro Medical Device Testing Symposium

December 10-11, 2013
Johns Hopkins
Mt. Washington Conference Center
Baltimore, MD

 NOW OPEN<http://altweb.jhsph.edu/news/2012/med_dev_reg.html>

This symposium, hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal 
Testing (CAAT), will examine how the National Academy of Sciences, Toxicity 
Testing in the 21st Century can be applied to Medical Devices. The program will 
examine current requirements and testing approaches, followed by an examination 
of in vitroassays useful in medical device testing.

Green Toxicology Information Day

Friday, November 22, 2013
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
615 N. Wolfe Street, Feinstone Hall #E2030
Baltimore MD 21205

Web site: http://caat.jhsph.edu/programs/workshops/greenTox.html

Overview: Green toxicology is the application of the principles of toxicology 
to chemicals with the specific intent of deriving design protocols for hazard 
reduction. The twelve principles of green chemistry outline a strategy to 
reduce hazard through molecular and process design. Reducing toxicity is at the 
core of green chemistry and sustainability, therefore the input of 
toxicologists early in the chemical enterprise is essential to inform the 
choices of molecular designers in selecting less hazardous design strategies. 
Information derived from mechanistic and computational toxicology combined 
forms the nexus between toxicology and green chemistry. Each group is trained 
to examine, understand and describe aspects of the structure hazard 
relationship from a narrow perspective. This conference will provide a forum 
for collaboration among scientists working in complementary fields to discover 
common ground in the quest for safer chemicals.
