56th Eurotox Conference - Personalized nano-immunotoxicology for the workplace
27 September 202156th Eurotox Conference - Personalized nano-immunotoxicology for the workplace https://infrastructure.nanocommons.eu/events/53/56th-eurotox-conference-personalized-nano-immunotoxicology-for-the-workplace/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/56th-eurotox-conference-personalized-nano-immunotoxicology-for-the-workplace In vitro immuno-nanotoxicological methods that take pre-existing conditions into account Abtract: In the workplace environment, where nanoparticles (NPs) may reach higher concentrations, the co-existence of allergens may result in new combinations of NPs with allergens. Normal as well as pre-disposed individuals, suffering from pre-existing allergic sensitization, may thus be affected by inhalation of aerosols carrying these new combinations having different immunological consequences. Recently, epithelial barrier integrity has been recognized to exert major impacts on the general health status of humans (epithelial barrier hypothesis, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41577-021-00538-7), responsible for increase in allergy, autoimmunity and other chronic conditions. Moreover, for therapeutic approaches allergens are conjugated with different types of particulate matter, which serve as adjuvants, to boost the immune reaction or, in the particular case of allergen-specific immunotherapy, to drive immunomodulation from a type 2 to a more tolerogenic response. Here, the variety of materials can range from classical alum-based to more sophisticated nanovaccine carriers. Decreasing the size-range into the nano-scale goes in line with specific surface-related effects, known as protein corona formation, having impact not just on the NP itself, but even more importantly on the bound allergen. We have recently established a suite of in vitro assays that elucidate effects at a structural and molecular level with a particular focus on responses specific for sensitized individuals, to sort out alterations in the allergic effector function. Data enrichment from in vitro experimentation may be accomplished by use of suitable in silico modeling tools. Therefore, protein corona prediction was tested and evaluated for its potential to complement the experimental workflow. Ultimately, combined in vitro and in silico data including comprehensive metadata was uploaded to the NanoCommons Knowledge Base to aid data FAIRness, i.e. Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability. In conclusion, such integrated workflows can help in early-stage decision-making processes in therapeutic development, and hence, promote safe-by design approaches in nanomedical innovation, as well as – in combination with in silico-based exposure-relevant dose-finding – serve for risk monitoring at specifically loaded areas, e.g., workplaces, taking into account pre-existing conditions such as allergic sensitization.

Electronic Lab Notebooks - Demo of NanoCommons-powered Features
13 January 2022Electronic Lab Notebooks - Demo of NanoCommons-powered Features https://infrastructure.nanocommons.eu/events/58/electronic-lab-notebooks-demo-of-nanocommons-powered-features/ https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/electronic-lab-notebooks-demo-of-nanocommons-powered-features On Thursday, January 13th 2022, the NanoCommons team, in a joint initiative with the NanoSafety Cluster, is offering an interactive online workshop on implementing Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs) for nanosafety assessment. Under the subtitle “Electronic Lab Notebooks - Demo of NanoCommons-powered Features”, you will learn how to establish a experimental workflows using electronic lab notebooks (ELNs). This starts with an introduction to the NanoCommons-powered features on how to manage, modify, create, and import protocols for assays. Tasks can be defined and assigned to different users and/or groups. Finally, data (incl. all relevant metadata) can be exported resulting in reports that facilitate data FAIRness. Technology advancement, the emergence of nanoinformatics and FAIR data principles implementation have increased the need for high-quality datasets. To achieve this, the data produced through academia, industry and regulatory bodies needs to be properly curated, to contain sufficient metadata and to be semantically annotated. In this way, data can be accessible and readable from both humans and machines, making it possible to be queried and mined using appropriate systems. One of the main objectives of NanoCommons is to promote the FAIR data principles, cross-project collaboration and data interoperability. This will make it possible to offer the nanosafety community high quality data that can be combined to produce big datasets and be used in novel modelling, machine learning, deep learning and AI techniques. We aim to achieve this by implementing data management processes covering the entire data lifecycle, and by moving the data curation process to the data generators, in line with the concept of Data Shepherding. Capturing the data and metadata as they are produced will save substantial time and resources, while resulting in higher quality datasets. ELNs can be implemented, through cloud services or locally, into everyday experimental practice streamlining and simplifying experimental and computational workflows, practices and data capturing. Target audience: Bench and computational scientists looking into automated ways to capture and retrieve data and making them available to the community. Expectation: Willing to learn new things and active participation in the interactive training session. The hackathon will take place on Thursday, January 13th from 15:00 till 17:00 h CET. Feel free to join and please do not forget to register here asap so we can tailor the workshop for your needs.
