The Dermo-Cosmetic Evaluation Service of the IQAC-CSIC, obtains the certification in Good Laboratory Practices

The Dermo-Cosmetic Service Department of the Institute of Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC), of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), directed by M Lluïsa Coderch, has been certified to work according to Good Laboratory Practices (BPL) in the percutaneous absorption assays. "It should be noted that it is the first CSIC Service that obtains it," says researcher M Lluïsa Coderch.

The Good Laboratory Practices (BPL / GLP), is a set of rules, operational procedures and practices established and promulgated by certain organizations such as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) or the Food and Drug Administration (FDA ), which are considered mandatory to ensure the quality and integrity of the data produced in certain types of research or studies.

Job offer. Candidate for PhD grant on behaviour and toxicogenomics.

We are seeking a pre-doctoral student to work in the area of behaviour and toxicogenomics. One of the goals of our current research is to study the mechanisms that regulated neuro-behavioral responses and the effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) in the aquatic and model organism Daphnia magna at different molecular levels using Systems Biology approaches. About 80% of the molecular targets of toxic chemicals are conserved in humans and Daphnia and the former species is not subject to ethical experimental animal regulations.

IV Training Course on Positive Matrix Factorization on 5‐7th February 2020 at the IDAEA-CSIC

Atmospheric particulate matter (PM) is a complex mixture of particles emitted by multiple sources. Positive Matrix Factorization (PMF) is a widely used receptor model to
perform PM source apportionment studies, identifying main sources of pollution and estimating their contributions to PM concentrations in ambient air.

International experts on receptor models and their applications to environmental sciences will offer a comprehensive training course on the use of USEPA PMF 5 program.
