Attend Continuing Education Courses Featuring MatTek Speakers

Advances in in vitro models to study pulmonary toxicity of particles, chemicals and pharmaceuticals

CEC 1: Human airway epithelial models: an introduction and their applicability in mechanistic research and regulatory toxicology

Sunday, 9/10, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM 

Patrick Hayden

Cosmetic Safety Evaluation in the Era of Alternatives 

Poster Session CEC 4: In vitro reconstructed 3D models: opportunities for testing cosmetic ingredients and products without animals 

Sunday, 9/10, 2:30 PM – 3:15 PM

Helena Kandarova

MatTek In Vitro Life Science Laboratories, Bratislava, Slovak Republic 


Attend our exhibitor talk:

Reconstructed 3D primary human small intestine model EpiIntestinal™ for prediction of drug induced gastrointestinal toxicity
Abstract: Gastrointestinal adverse drug reactions (ADR) cause health problems and create a burden on the health care system and the pharmaceutical industry. Gastrointestinal ADR often lead to late-stage drug attrition. This session will demonstrate the utility of a novel in vitro 3D primary human small intestine tissue based assay system to identify biomarkers that can better predict human ADR compared to preclinical animal models, and is ideal for therapeutic candidate screening.

Tuesday, 9/12, 1 PM – 2PM, SNT – Blue lounge
