OpenTox USA 2017

OpenTox is a global community for predictive toxicology and safety assessment

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 to Thursday, July 13, 2017

(All day)
Searle Conference Center, Duke University

The goal of the meeting is to discuss and develop important components for driving 21st century approaches to predictive toxicology and safety assessment forward. We assume that collaboration driven by an open global platform and open standards will be a key success factor. Integrating heterogenous evidence supported by a common knowledge framework and ecosystem of tools and partners will enable practical application, judgements and decisions including industrial application and regulatory acceptance.

The format of the meeting will be based around groupings of 5-minute presentations by students and post-docs followed by discussion panels of CEINT faculty who lead research in the area. These presentations are designed to practice the critical skill of the elevator speech. Use this time to highlight your primary research question(s), interesting findings, and next steps, and we strictly adhere to the 5 minute time limit with the philosophy that this is just enough time to provoke thought and let people know about your work so they can contact you for more information, while also allowing for a wide range of presenters across the center. We’d like to have as many students and post-docs present as are interested; if you are unsure whether you should present, please check with your faculty advisor.

POSTERS:

Students and post-docs are asked to create a poster for the Wednesday evening poster session, using the template available here under Quick Links. Each person is responsible for printing and bringing their own poster (costs paid by each institution). For those interested, fabric posters can be ordered from spoonflower.com, which they can be folded up for easy travel. Just make sure to inquire about the necessary lead time for submitting and receiving in the mail prior to traveling to Duke.

CEINT Research Summary Book (password protected)

MEETING FORMAT:

The format of the meeting will be based around groupings of 5-minute presentations by students and post-docs followed by discussion panels of CEINT faculty who lead research in the area. For all who attended last year, it will be very similar. These presentations are designed to highlight your primary research question(s), interesting findings, and next steps, and we strictly adhere to the 5 minute time limit with the philosophy that this is just enough time to provoke thought and let people know about your work so they can contact you for more information, while also allowing for a wide range of presenters across the center. We’d like to have as many students and post-docs present as are interested; if you are unsure whether you should present, please check with your faculty advisor.

In place of a poster session, this year we will be creating a book of 1-page research summaries as a platform for everyone to share their research throughout the center. This 2015 CEINT Research Summary Book, is accessible online and is intended to foster connections between people with similar or complementary research interests, both during and hopefully after the meeting. For this reason, we encourage all students and post-docs to submit summaries even if you are new, in which case summaries include planned research questions and next (or first) steps.

CEINT Scholar Steering Committee (CSSC) meeting will be held the afternoon of Wednesday, May 13th. Additional information on this portion of the meeting will be sent out at a later date.

TRAVEL:

Students and post-docs should check with their PI regarding travel and attendance.

LODGING:

CEINT has a block of rooms reserved at the Hilton Garden Inn for this event. Timely completion of the Meeting Registration form serves as your lodging reservation. When you check in, please provide your name as you entered in on the registration form. Students and post-docs will be sharing rooms with someone of the same gender. Indicate the name of your roommate preference, when completing the meeting registration form.

Hilton Garden Inn

BioMetals 2014 - Session topics relevant to metal based nanotechnology

Sunday, July 13, 2014 to Friday, July 18, 2014

9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Duke University

BioMetals 2014 is an international conference devoted to exploring novel and interdisciplinary research in the broad area of metals in biology.

The conference is the 9th International BioMetals Symposium and is the biennial meeting of the International BioMetals Society. The focus of the conference is exploring the relationships between metals, the environment, and biological systems, including the roles of metals in both health and disease. Attendance is anticipated at between 150 – 200 scientists (at all career stages) and we expect about 50% of the group to be international. Target participants include chemists (biological, biophysical, inorganic, and organic), biochemists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, physiologists, geneticists, and medical doctors from universities, hospitals, institutes, industry, and government laboratories.

Further details, session topics, and invited speakers may be found on our website.

Many of our session topics are relevant to metal based nanotechnology and we hope that CEINT students and faculty will consider submitting abstracts. This is a great opportunity to attend an international conference without the travel costs.

Fall ACS National Meeting - Session on the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology

Sunday, August 10, 2014 to Thursday, August 14, 2014

8:30 am to 5:00 pm
San Francisco, CA

CEINT and UCCEIN is planning a session on the Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology at the Fall ACS National Meeting in San Francisco on August 10-14, 2014. Abstracts can be submitted through the ACS website (http://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/meetings/fall-2014.html). The deadline for submission in March 10, 2014. The symposium is part of the ENVR division and being organized by Greg Lowry and Arturo Keller.

Description: Engineered nanomaterials have tremendous potential to benefit the environment, but despite 10 years of research uncertainty remains about their environmental fate and effects of these materials, models to describe their behavior are still lacking. This symposium will explore the need to understand nanomaterials life cycle, releases, exposure, fate, and effects in a comprehensive manner. Papers that provide mechanistic insights into how the nanomaterial properties lead to the observed efficacy of application, reactivity, or toxicity are highly desired. Papers presenting the development and validation of models for predicting nanomaterial release, fate or effects are also highly desired. Papers with these and related topics will be given highest priority for oral presentations.

NOTE: Papers on applications of nanotechnology for energy, environmental science or biomedical uses should be submitted to ENVR031; graphene-based nanomaterials papers should be submitted to ENVR032.
