Coming: Symposium organised by UFT and SCAHT "Bridging the gap between regulation and research in human health effects of pesticides", webinar on 23 September 2020

At this one-day symposium we would like to paint a picture of the status quo on pesticide exposure and hazard assessment by inviting the leading Swiss experts from the research-, regulatory and industry communities. In light of the upcoming popular initiatives aiming to restrict or ban the use of synthetic pesticides, what is the current stand of the evidence-based human health hazard assessment of pesticides? Considering the public concern with pesticides, we would further like to give some insight into the perspectives of risk perception, communication and management.

Organised by Unité facultaire de toxicologie (UFT) and Swiss Centre for Applied Human Toxicology (SCAHT).
