Visit MN-AM at the 19th National Congress of the Italian Society of Toxicology (SITOX) in Bologna in February 2020 is attending the upcoming 19th National Congress of the Italian Society of Toxicology, SITOX 2020, in Bologna, Italy, from February 11-12, 2020. We cordially invite you to visit our booth at the exhibition. We will demonstrate our suite of software tools and applications in the area of computational toxicology, safety and risk assessment and read-across. We are available to answer any questions regarding our technology and will be glad to help you finding the right solution for your challenges.
In addition, we will held a pre-congress training course on "Linking In Silico Methods to Navigation of Chemical Safety / Risk Assessment" in the congress hotel (Sala Falco) on Monday, February 10, from 11:00am - 6:30pm. Furthermore, there will be a session and poster presentations related to our technology at the SITOX 2020 Congress.

Please find below a complete list of our contibutions at the SITOX 2020. We are looking forward to meeting you in Bologna.
