Alternatives to experimentation - Case Study: OECD QSAR Toolbox

In the process of the registration of chemicals, the main part of the budget is devoted to lab studies.

Peter Jenkinson and Faizan Sahigara will focus on how alternative methods can help in cutting down your study costs dramatically.

The audience will be introduced to several alternative methods currently being used and are acceptable for registering REACH dossiers. The useful features of OECD QSAR* Toolbox will be demonstrated along with some interesting case studies.
