Professor Ruth Roberts, Co-founder and Director of ApconiX will be joining Rob Wallis and other eminent scientists in delivering training at the highly acclaimed course Practical Application of Toxicology in Drug Development.  The course, co-organised by the British Toxicology Society and the American College of Toxicology will be held at The Møller Centre, Churchill College, Cambridge from 15-19th July 2019.

Ruth commented, “I enjoy contributing to the training of today’s toxicologists.  ApconiX knows that continuing professional development is an important aspect of ensuring that toxicology remains at the forefront of drug discovery”.

The course will provide training in drug development toxicology to scientists from all over the world. Participants will obtain an overall understanding of the principles of non-clinical safety evaluation.  Practical application of these principles and interpretation of non-clinical safety data will be highlighted. Regulatory toxicology in drug development will also be emphasised, from both a European and a US perspective. Through the week the students will participate in tutored group study of regulatory cases and original data from a regulatory submission.

The course is intended to benefit individuals from biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies working with either small or large molecules, along with those from CROs, regulatory agencies and academia.  It will particularly valuable to candidates interested in toxicology and its application in safety assessment of drugs and medical products.  Toxicologists early in their career seeking more in-depth knowledge and understanding of the role of toxicology in safety assessment will also find the course worthwhile.  It is also suitable for scientists trained in ancillary disciplines (such as chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, medicine, etc.) making a career change to work in drug safety assessment.
