The webinar will chiefly focus on defining the scope and use of OECD and other international test guidelines for toxicity assessment of nanomaterials

Nano safety

On 22-23 July 2021, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Globally, as multiple nanoproducts aim to reach the application and commercial stages, it becomes vital to understand any potential risks associated with their synthesis and application. The nanotoxicology field, however, suffers from inconsistent methodologies that affect the results greatly. Use of ratified international guidelines help to establish consistencies in nanotoxicity related research and enhances reproducibility. The key focus of this webinar, therefore, is to define the scope and use of the OECD and other international test guidelines for toxicity assessment of the nanomaterials using a variety of in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo model systems including plants, bacteria, nematodes, microalgae, fruit-fly, zebrafish, rodent and mammalian cell lines.

This webinar aims to bring together leading academic researchers to share their wet-lab work and the standard guidelines followed by them for eco-toxicity assessments of nanoproducts that are useful for agricultural, food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetic industries. The organising team and the renowned speakers are also going to share videos for the experimental method that are followed routinely in their laboratory for nano-safety studies. This will help participants enormously to set-up experiments in their laboratory.
