The TOXI division has been awarded an Innovative Program Grant from ACS to conduct a series of webinars on innovative technologies to understand and predict drug toxicity. Dr. Kaushik Mitra has spearheaded the process. Last year, two excellent webinars focused on mitigating drug-Induced liver injury as part of the 2020 Drug Design and Delivery Symposium. The webinar recordings can be found at https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/acs-webinars/collections/2020-drug-design.html. The upcoming webinars will focus on cutting-edge tools to predict toxicity. Please stay tuned for updates.
