XXIII Scientific Course of Mediterrània-CIE

In April 15-17 2015, the 23rd edition of the Scientific Course, organized by Mediterrània-Centre d’Iniciatives Ecològiques and TecnATox, will be held in Tarragona. The conference, which is entitled “Toxicants: the dark side of the progress”, will gather together key speakers in the areas of environmental and food toxicology, cover a broad range of topics, from historical episodes of environmental pollution to the health impacts of food toxicants.

TencATox members will be actively participating in the event. Prof. José L. Domingo and Dr. Martí Nadal are co-directors of the Course, while Dr. Lolita Vilavert, Dr. Gemma Perelló and Dr. Neus Roig will be speakers of a number of lectures. Leaflet

Dr. Martí Nadal, key speaker of WorkTox2015 at University of São Paulo, Brazil

Dr. Martí Nadal was recently invited to attend the II International Workshop on Toxicology, which was held at the Ribeirão Preto campus of University of São Paulo, Brazil. The event was organized by Prof. Fernando Barbosa Jr., researcher of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences of Ribeirão Preto at University of São Paulo. Dr. Nadal took advantage of the workshop to present some advances of TecnATox on one of the most recent research areas of the group, focused on climate change, giving a plenary lecture entitled “Influence of the climate change on the environmental levels of POPs: An additional risk?”.

Dr. Nadal’s visit was aimed at boosting the collaboration of TecnATox with Prof. Barbosa’s group, one of the most prestigious worldwide in the area of food toxicology. In addition, Dr. Nadal visited the facilities of the School of Nursery of Ribeirão Preto, where he met with Prof. Susana Segura-Muñoz and several members of her research group. TecnATox and Dr. Segura-Muñoz’s group has carried out an intense collaboration for more than 10 years, performing a number of joint projects in the areas of environmental toxicology and health risk assessment.

Partners of a new COST Action

TecnATox will be in the partnership of a new Trans-Domain COST Action, entitled “Network on technology-critical elements - from environmental processes to human health threats” (TD COST Action TD1407). The Action will create a network of scientists working and interested on technology-critical elements (TCEs), from an environmental perspective to potential human health threats, with the aim of defining the current state of knowledge and gaps, proposing priority research lines/activities, and acting as a platform for new collaborations and joint research projects.
COST is the longest-running European framework supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe. Participants from up to 16 European countries will take part in this specific COST Action, which will be coordinated by Dr. Antonio Cobelo (CSIC-Vigo). Dr. Martí Nadal will act as a member of the Management Committee.
