CITE seminar series
CITE - Chemicals In the Environment - is a research topic within the Helmholtz programm oriented funding. CITE addresses multiple aspects of the impact of chemicals in the environment. The seminar series (irregular) with invited external speakers aims to reflect these different aspects.
Date: Tuesday, June 24th, 03:00pm, building 6, room 111
Presenter: Dr. Roman Ashauer
Title: Patterns in chemical space - the role of toxicokinetics and toxicodynamics
Abstract: Why do we need to find patterns in chemical space? Because there are millions of species in the environment and over 30'000 chemicals in use. The talk will illustrate how refining toxicokinetics allows new insights about toxicodynamics. Applications range from in vitro to in vivo toxicity extrapolation, understanding of species sensitivity differences, QSARs and defining new phenotypic anchors.
Dr. Roman Ashauer is an environmental scientist working in the field of ecotoxicology and environmental modelling. Following his PhD at the University of York in 2007 he worked at Eawag, the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology until he was appointed as Anniversary Research Lecturer in the Environment Department at the University of York in 2013. In 2007 Dr. Ashauer won the SETAC-CEFIC LRI Innovative Science Award. www.ecotoxmodels.org.”
