Scientific Programme

The scientific program committee has decided to schedule 2 paralell sessions to reflect the high demand for additional scientific, societal and regulatory topics to be discussed at the ESTIV congress.

Themes:

  • Bio-engineering, stem cells and disease models
  • Models, biomarkers and assays for endocrine disruption and developmental toxicity
  • Models, biomarkers and assays for systemic and immune toxicity
  • Organ-on-chip models
  • Challenges in EU Cosmetic regulation
  • Computational toxicology – in silico modelling, read-across, artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • Local toxicity testing (safety and efficacy)
  • Toxicokinetics and in vitro – in vivo extrapolation
  • Animal product free NAMs
  • In vitro methods for safety testing of biopharmaceuticals/biotherapies/vaccines
  • NAMs in the Environmental toxicity / Green deal
  • Mixtures and biomonitoring
  • In vitro COVID-19 research/lung and cardiovascular models
  • In vitro methods for safety assessment of medical devices
  • GIVIMP, GCMP and GLP
  • Other
