12 Apr 2021 - 16 Apr 2021
Workshop on 'Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOP) for radiation effects', virtual event
The workshop will be held from 12 to 16 April 2021, every afternoon CET time.
The concept of AOP is a new concept for radioprotection research that has originally been proposed and developed for the assessment of the toxicity of chemical stressors with an overall goal to aid regulation based of mechanistic knowledge of biological effects. Promoted and coordinated by the OECD, the AOP concept has been considered of value to radioprotection research that can help reconcile knowledge within radiation biology and epidemiology. The workshop’s main objective is to enhance awareness of and trigger interest in the AOP concept among those involved in radioprotection research.
Organized by the Institute of Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) under the mandate of MELODI, in collaboration with the ALLIANCE and with the contribution of OECD/ NEA/CRPPR/HLG-LDR, EURADOS and Health Canada
