Submit an Abstract

Become part of SETAC Seville’s programme and share your research by 29 November.

Take the stage and present your research in Seville in a fun entertaining way! Apply by 10 December.


We want to hightlight the session 1.14 “New Approach Methodologies (NAMs; In Vitro, in Chemico, in Silico) For Particulates, Nanoforms and Advanced Materials”, chaired by CUSP members (Iseult Lynch and others).


Here is the page for the tracks & sessions

You are invited to submit an abstract for a proposed session chaired by CUSP at SETAC 2024, in Seville from 5 – 9 May 2024


What the session is about:

The session (Track 4, Session 4.23 ‘The Fate and Effects of Micro- and Nano-plastics in Relation to Human Health Exposure’) will present the latest developments in analytical techniques, biological assays, models and associated results that advance our understanding of human exposure to MNPs and their fate and effects.

 What we are looking for: 

  • Research into the fate and effects of MNPs in relation to human exposure from early life to adulthood is of particular interest.
  • We welcome presentations related to the identification of MNPs in a variety of complex matrices such as food, human tissues and consumer products and relevant environmental media; the synthesis and/or characterisation of pristine, weathered, and aged reference and test materials, and associated additives or adsorbed contaminants; newly developed and validated tools and methodologies; and in vitro/in vivo toxicity testing in and across cells, tissues, and organs.
  • Tools for the harmonisation of data related to the human health impacts of MNPs are also highly relevant to this session.
  • Finally, we strongly encourage contributions related to MNP risk assessment, that could inform policy and regulation.

When and how to submit your abstract:

You’ll need to be a member in order to submit your abstract. If you are not a member, you can join SETAC for free here.

Submit your abstract under Track 4, Session 4.23. The submission portal is open until 29th November 2023.
