GUTS modelling: From the Theory to the Practice.

GUTS modelling: From the Theory to the Practice.

 In ecological modelling, toxicokinetic-toxicodynamic (TKTD) models have been deemed of particular interest for regulatory risk assessment of pesticides for aquatic organisms in the newest EFSA Scientific Opinion. This type of modelling helps enhancing the interpretation and use of experimental data for Environmental Risk Assessment.

 Ibacon GmbH is striving to achieve and develop the highest level of expertise for its clients. The Ecological Modelling department works with the most recent and innovative TKTD frameworks. They are particularly involved in the development, use, and teaching of the application of the General Unified Threshold model of Survival (GUTS). The GUTS model is a TKTD framework making the most out of survival data from toxicity test. It allows the simulation of survival under time variable exposure scenarios.

 Dr. Benoit Goussen is part of the teaching team of the training course on GUTS modelling taking place during the SETAC Helsinki Annual Meeting (TC02 – GUTS Modelling: From the Theory to the Practice).

Benoit looks forward to assist you. Please contact him for further questions either by Email (benoit.goussen@ibacon.com) or by phone +49 6154 697 289.

Dr. Annika Agatz, also part of our modelling team, participates at the SETAC meeting. If you want to contact her during the conference, please come to our booth no. 26.
