OECD QSAR TOOLBOX TRAINING

TRAINING WORKSHOPS for OECD MEMBER COUNTRIES and STAKEHOLDERS
BARCELONA, SPAIN

BASIC TRAINING: 11-12 OF JUNE, 2018

ADVANCED PRACTICAL TRAINING: 13-15 OF JUNE 2018,

[*NOTE: BASIC COURSE IS A PREREQUISITE TO REGISTER FOR ADVANCED PRACTICAL]

BACKGROUND

The QSAR Application Toolbox
was developed under the aegis of OECD to facilitate the use of the category approach and QSAR methods to fill data gaps in classification and labeling. Use of the Toolbox will save resources, reduce the need for animal testing, and greatly accelerate the hazard assessment process.

The Toolbox provides the ability to:

• Make estimates of the relevant endpoints for single chemicals, linked to the CAS number or the chemical structure. Obtain summary information on the validation processes and results of the model so that the user can decide for which regulatory purpose the estimate can be used.
• Obtain a list of analogues for a chemical, together with their experimental, or estimated environmental, toxic or health effects.
• Obtain estimates for metabolite activation/detoxification information for the chemical.
• Interface with IUCLID 6 with ability for automated submission of estimated values for registration purposes.

Please open the presentations: Introduction to QSAR


WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS OFFICIAL TRAINING?
- Chemical industry involved in REACH, Biocides, Cosmetics, Plant Protection Products
- Pharma industry- ICH M7 genotoxic impurities
- I+D staff for (eco)toxicity profile anticipation
- Researchers and university students - (reduced fee for academia)
- National Authorities (reduced fee available)

TRAINING COURSES CONTENT:

The aim is to acquire the knowledge in a practical way with by numerous practical examples and exercises. Each participant follows the cases on their laptop. Individual support assures the correct progress.


QSAR Toolbox training is offered at two levels: Basic and Advanced Practical

BASIC COURSE (2 days training):
Main topics are: chemical profiling, selection and use of different toxicological databases, categorisation, data gap filling, automatic report, interface with IUCLID 6, automated prediction module, metabolic maps. Practical individual exercises are covering different endpoints (tox and eco-tox).

ADVANCED PRACTICAL COURSE (3 days training):
Advanced functionalities are shown supported with more than 20 different examples of predictions.
Bring your case:
During the last day of the training, participants are invited to bring their example of a molecule and endpoint.
Toolbox team will deliver the result of prediction while participants perform prediction on their own. Each of these cases will be discussed together with the lecturer during the session.


WHO IS CONDUCTING THE TRAINING?
Prof. Ovanes Mekenyan, director of Laboratory of Mathematical Chemistry OASIS in Bourgas is the head of the developers of the QSAR Toolbox. During the training he is assisted with other members of the developer’s team who individually instructs the participants during exercises and practical work
