Third International Conference on Alternatives for Developmental Neurotoxicity Testing (DNT3)


Developmental Neurotoxicity (DNT) is an issue of growing concern in the context of chemical exposure. The developing human nervous system is susceptible to toxicants, and exposure during development may cause lasting neurological deficits. The conference will bring together diverse stakeholders from around the globe (research scientists, regulators, industry representatives, academics, paediatricians etc), in order to discuss the following topics:

  • DNT and neurological deficits
  • DNT and regulatory legislation
  • Biomarkers and DNT
  • Gene/Environment interactions
  • Molecular pathways and DNT
  • Alternative methods for DNT Testing
  • Automation and potential of DNT test methods
