The Australasian College of
Toxicology & Risk Assessment

Join the Australasian College of Toxicology & Risk Assessment (ACTRA) in a unique webinar series that commenced in June 2020! The webinar series will cover two overarching themes in relation to toxicology and risk assessment in Australia:

  1. Lessons learnt from case studies.
  2. Practical applications of theoretical concepts.

These sessions will provide you with an opportunity to gain insight from Australia’s most accomplished and experienced toxicologists and risk assessors, and more importantly encourage an open forum for questions and discussion.

Attending webinars counts towards your continuing education credit points at the rate of one point per webinar.

If you’re new to the ACTRA webinar series here is a taste of what to expect:

ACTRA is pleased to present a webinar “Outdoor air pollution and cancer” by John Frangos on 1 December 2022 at 3-4 pm.

Outdoor air pollution and cancer

In 2013 the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified outdoor air pollution as a Group 1 carcinogen (sufficient evidence that exposure to outdoor air pollution causes lung cancer). IARC also noted a positive association with increased risk of bladder cancer.  Since then several reviews have also been undertaken. This webinar will:

  • Explore reasons for classification
  • Discuss underlying data and mode of action
  • Look at subsequent reviews and their conclusions
  • Explore differences in assessment techniques for evaluating the scientific literature.

About the PresenterJohn Frangos

John is a certified toxicologist with the American Board of Toxicology, and a Fellow of the Australasian College of Toxicology and Risk Assessment and a leading practitioner in toxicology consulting. He has extensive experience in air pollution related risk assessment.
