Agilent will run a series of workshops during the Society of Toxicology Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California on March 11- 15 2012. The SOT meeting brings together experts, speakers and delegates within this industry with leaders in their field convening to discuss new ideas, innovations and products. 

The first workshop will take place on Monday, March 12, 2012 1:00pm – 2:00pm:
KNOWLEDGE-DRIVEN MULTI-OMICS INTEGRATION FOR PATHWAYS OF TOXICITY (PoT) RESEARCH: POLICY AND TECHNOLOGY DRIVERS

The workshop in summary:
The use of transcriptomics tools for toxicology research is nearly a decade old. Recent advances in other complementary –omics domains offer the possibility of mapping the various Pathways of Toxicity (PoT). The regulatory, scientific and technological drivers of current PoT research will be explored by two leading toxicologists.
Educational Objectives:
Attendees will learn about current policy issues and how these are driving the emergence of novel approaches for toxicology research using state-of-the-art multi-omics tools and pathway-driven data analytics.

Speakers-
Thomas Hartung, PhD (Johns Hopkins University, USA)
Russell S. Thomas (Hamner Institute, USA)

The second email will take place on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 2:45pm – 3:45pm:

TRANCSRIPTOMICS TOOLS FOR GENOTOXICITY TESTING: MECHANISTIC INSIGHTS

The workshop in summary:
The development of mechanism-based approaches for genotoxicity testing is an important undertaking and a prerequisite for the development of better, more rapid identification of genotoxic vs. non genotoxic compounds. Two transcriptomics-based mechanistic studies will be presented by leading toxicologists, including the development of guidelines for biomarker qualification.


Educational Objectives:
Attendees will learn about the application of transcriptomic methods to mechanistic toxicology studies, including biomarker qualification and the development of in-vitro testing alternatives to existing animal-based genetic toxicology assays for use in the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries.

Speakers-
Al Fornace (Georgetown University, USA)
Simon Reed, PhD (Cardiff University, UK)
