10th Berlin Workshop on Developmental Toxicology

25 years after the first Berlin Workshop on Developmental Toxicity we are organising the 10th Berlin workshop on Developmental Toxicology.

The “10th Berlin Workshop on Developmental Toxicology” is aimed to bring together international experts from authorities, research institutions, universities and industry to discuss the final update of the DevTox database, to consider specific aspects in regulatory risk assessment of developmental neurotoxicity and to debate alternative strategies in testing developmental effects in the future with the main goal to improve harmonisation in the worldwide assessment of developmental findings and laboratory investigations.
The topics are grouped in three different main panels. Results of the discussions will be published by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR):

- The DevTox-Project
- Risk Assessment - Developmental Neurotoxicity
- Future Methodology in DevTox

The 10th Berlin Workshop (BW) is a continuation of a series of Berlin Workshops. At the last BW 2018, the need for a harmonised terminology for classification
of anomalies in laboratory animals in developmental toxicity studies aiming for human health risk assessment was emphasised and the DevTox database was
identified as an extremely valuable tool. It was also agreed that still one of the biggest challenges for testing developmental toxicity in the 21st century is the development of animal-free test strategies and alternatives to animal testing that could provide information relevant for humans in a rapid, efficient, and mechanistically informative manner.
Presentations and main results of the 10th Workshop will be published on the BfR Website. A report of the workshop will be published in a peer reviewed journal.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
