Reproductive, Developmental, and Juvenile Toxicology: The Present and the Future

Attendees in lecture hall at Reproductive, Developmental, and Juvenile Toxicology: The Present and the Future.

At our recent seminar in San Diego, you will have gained insight as our experts introduced modern testing paradigms and new strategies to potentially reduce animal use, we discussed the latest regulations, micro-sampling and more.

In addition to a morning of stimulating scientific discussion, this seminar provided opportunities for delegates to network with fellow members of the scientific community. We are happy to share our presentations and welcome any further questions.
