IPTC 2019 - 12th International Particle Toxicology Conference

11-13 September 2019,
Salzburg, Austria

IPTC 2019

The IPTC series of conferences brings together experts on particle toxicology. The audience is worldwide and all types of particles are considered. The conference covers basic research issues, but has a strong focus on applications of particle toxicology, which are in work place safety, environmental safety, consumer safety, medical and diagnostic developments and other fields.

A focus of the Salzburg meeting will be the challenges to translate knowledge derived from particle safety research into regulation and legislation, which is now a main issue in the field. The first IPTC in Austria will contribute to developing solutions for the benefit of workers, consumers, patients and environment. An International Young Scientist Forum (IYSF) for PhD students will precede the IPTC.

We invite you to Salzburg and look forward to see you here!


Thank you for attending IPTC 2019!
