Following upon last year’s inaugural computational nanotoxicology session (March 2012) offered as an integrative component of the NanoImpactNet conference, a second round of core QNano modelling training has been scheduled.
In furtherance of a research infrastructure which fosters interdisciplinary, translational, and collaborative use of QSAR methodologies in nanoparticle risk assessment - as delineated by a European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) team back in 2011- this year’s workshops are held in conjunction with a Committee meeting of Modelling Nanomaterial Toxicity (MODENA), which is a MPNS COST Action TD 1204 project.
SPONSORING BODIES & CO-ORDINATING HOSTS:
SAFENANO & INSTITUTE OF OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE (IOM)
DATE & VENUE:
WEDNESDAY, 27 MARCH 2013

OUTPUTS & OUTCOMES:
" " Training materials from the modelling school will be made available for inclusion in the
QNano Knowledge Hub http://www.qnano-ri.eu/knowledge-hub/the-qnano-knowledge-hub.html, which is intended to be a centralised resource to address the training and outreach needs in the area of processing, analysis, and characterisation of nanomaterials for use in biological applications, focusing initially on the priority needs of new researchers, regulators, industry researchers, and safety managers."
