The workshop features Mark Cronin, Professor of Predictive Toxicology at the School of Pharmacy and Chemistry, Liverpool John Moores University, England. Prof. Cronin has over 25 years' expertise in the application of in silico approaches to predict the toxicity and fate of chemicals; in addition to development of strategies (such as integrated testing strategies) to develop alternatives to whole animal testing for toxicity.
Research in recent years has centred on the application of these alternatives for regulatory use (e.g. classification and labelling, prioritisation, data gap filling) and for product development and regulatory risk assessment.
Current research includes the application of chemical grouping and read-across to assess human health and environmental endpoints, particular the linking of the Adverse Outcome Pathways to category formation.
