Training course on mixture toxicity in the frame of the STAR project

January 27 - 30, 2014   Mol (BELGIUM)

This workshop aims to provide:

  • A description of the principal concepts of concentration addition and independent action for predicting mixture toxicity, their range of applicability and their limitations.
  • An overview of the available designs for a particular mixture toxicity related research question.
  • An overview of ways to address deviations from the existing reference models
  • An in-depth knowledge on the concept of the Dynamic-Energy-Budget (DEB) theory, and the effects of toxicants and mixture exposure within this theory.
  • Practical statistical approaches to be able to tackle linear and generalised linear modelling and to describe dose-effect relationships
  • Concepts on environmental risk assessment approaches in an multiple contaminant context.
