PDA Webinar: A Career in Risk Assessment – What is it? And How Do You Get Started?

Organization: Postdoctoral Assembly
Event Date or Start Date: 5/31/2018
End Date: 5/31/2018
Event Type: Other SOT Events
Country:
State or Region:
Additional Meeting Information: Co-Chaired by SOT PDA Secretary, Gurjot Kaur, SOT PDA Treasurer, Marianna Stamou and incoming SOT PDA Treasurer, David Faulkner.

In many ways, the practice of assessing risk is a core tenet of toxicology – how much is too much? What happens when that threshold is reached? If it’s surpassed? In some cases, the outcome of a risk assessment is not simply a yes-or-no answer, but rather, a quantitative threshold, or a risk/benefit analysis. These outcomes are often used for safeguarding human health by setting quantitative thresholds on exposure to environmental chemicals. Similarly, in the development of new drugs to treat human disease, prediction, identification and mitigation of potential toxic effects are of paramount importance when designing safer pharmaceuticals.

As concerns over the number of chemicals in the environment rise and pharmaceutical companies reinforce their commitments to developing safer drugs, opportunities for a career in risk assessment are becoming more available (and desirable) to early career toxicologists. However, many young toxicologists are only tangentially familiar with what a career in this field involves and what it takes to be successful. This webinar offers a peek into the daily lives of toxicologists working in risk assessment by bringing together four toxicologists from the academic, government and industrial sectors. The presenters will discuss how one becomes a risk assessor, what is required to obtain expertise in this field, and what benefits can be expected from the work. The SOT Postdoctoral Assembly Executive Board invites all SOT postdocs and graduate students to join us for this exciting webinar on careers in risk assessment. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers during a Q & A session after the speakers have presented.

Speakers:
John Paul Gosling (Associate Professor, University of Leeds, UK)
Maureen Gwinn (Senior Science Advisor, US EPA, USA)
Mikael Persson (Principal Scientist, AstraZeneca, Sweden)
John Wambaugh (Physical Scientist, EPA, USA)

FDA Colloquium- Food from Genetically Engineered Plants: What Role for Metabolomics?

Organization: FDA
Event Date or Start Date: 6/13/2018
End Date: 6/13/2018
Event Type: SOT-Sponsored Events
Country: US
State or Region: MD
Additional Meeting Information:

New plant varieties intended for commercial release have routinely been examined for agronomic characteristics and product quality (e.g., taste and suitability for processing) prior to commercialization. Foods from varieties that have passed these premarket analyses have historically been safe. In addition to these analyses, food safety assessments of genetically engineered crops routinely include, among other analyses, a targeted compositional analysis typically comparing the levels of toxicants, anti-nutrients and key nutrients in food from the new variety to those in food historically consumed. The intent of this analysis is to determine whether there have been changes in the levels of key substances in the food that would be important from a nutritional or toxicological perspective. While the methods historically used for this assessment have been reliable, new methods (referred to as metabolic profiling or sometimes metabolomics) provide the ability to produce a molecular profile of new varieties that spans more substances than typically examined in the focused biochemical analysis. Although metabolic profiling may provide more data about the composition of food from a new variety, it is not certain that metabolic profiling would routinely improve predictability of food safety assessments.

Plant composition may be affected by a wide range of factors (e.g., genetics, environment, life stage, etc.) that have not historically precipitated food safety issues in new varieties. Only in notable exceptions has food from new plant varieties contained harmful levels of endogenous substances. This colloquium will describe the premarket safety assessments performed for foods from genetically engineered plants and examine the scientific factors important when considering whether metabolic profiling data would have utility or added value in the safety assessment of food from genetically engineered plants.

5th NovAliX Conference - Biophysics in Drug Discovery 2018

Organization: LD Organisation
Event Date or Start Date: 6/13/2018
End Date: 6/15/2018
Event Type: Other Scientific Events
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: MA
Additional Meeting Information: The use of biophysical methods has become pervasive in the drug discovery process, allowing not only to identify low-affinity hits at the screening stage but also to obtain detailed information on target / ligand interactions at more advanced stages (see the review Renaud et al. 2016 Nat. Rev. Drug Discov. 15: 679-698). This is perfectly illustrated by the success of FBDD (fragment-based drug design), where the progress of biophysical techniques in terms of sensitivity, speed, and automation has been instrumental (see the review Erlanson et al. 2016 Nat. Rev. Drug Discov. 15: 605-619). Indeed FBDD is now widely adopted in both academia and the pharmaceutical industry and has lead to 2 approved drugs and more than 30 compounds being evaluated in clinical trials.

The fifth edition of the conference intends again to bring together biophysicists and medicinal chemists to improve the synergy between their disciplines in order to deliver better drugs on a shorter timeline.

This year, the Scientific Programme will include the following sessions :
- Membrane Proteins

Environmental Mixtures Workshop

Organization: Columbia University
Event Date or Start Date: 8/23/2018
End Date: 8/24/2018
Event Type: Other Scientific Events
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: NY
Additional Meeting Information:

Overview: Traditionally, environmental health studies have focused on assessing risks related to a single pollutant at a time. This, however, does not reflect reality, since we are constantly exposed to multiple pollutants at once. Recently, there has been an increased interest in methods that allow researchers to assess exposures to many pollutants at a time. These methods are able to accommodate the high dimension of the exposure matrix, as well as the usually high correlation across exposures of interest.

This two-day intensive workshop will provide a rigorous introduction to multiple different techniques to analyze exposure to mixtures in environmental health. Led by a team of world experts in environmental health, epidemiology and statistics, many of whom have developed their own methods to analyze exposure to mixtures, the workshop will integrate seminar lectures with hands-on computer lab sessions to put concepts into practice. Emphasis will be given to supervised and unsupervised methods. Since the choice of method depends on the research question at hand, the workshop will conclude with a panel discussion on when each method presented is appropriate for use and for which research questions.
