4th ICH-M7/QSAR Workshop

ICH-M7 QSAR/Expert Judgment Workshop - iGenotox Challenge Prediction –

The 4th ICH-M7/QSAR Workshop will be held on November 19 in ACEM/JEMS 2019 from November 18 to 20 in Tokyo. Please see the ACEM/JEMS 2019 web site for the detailed information and registration http://www.acem-jems2019.jp/. We will discuss QSAR expert judgment for Ames mutagenicity (Part I) as well as purge factor approach for the control of potential impurities in pharmaceuticals (Part II). Simultaneous interpretation between English and Japanese will be provided in the Workshop.

Part I will include exercises for ambiguous QSAR outcomes with 20 query substances. You can obtain the excel file of the chemical structures here (20 Substances). We welcome your submission of expert judgments with any of these substances, and may appoint you as a speaker of an interesting approach. Try this exercise and return the results to the workshop organizer (e-mail below) by September 10th.
