The Early Warning System - preparedness and response to New Psychoactive Substances in the EU

Sala 2.2.12, FCUL, Lisboa

Speaker: Ana Gallegos is with the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) since 2009 and currently holds the position of Head of Sector, Action on new drugs. She is responsible, amongst others, for the coordination of the European Union Early Warning System on new psychoactive substances. A Spanish national, she holds a PhD in theoretical and computational chemistry from the University of Girona. She has published over 50 research papers, including peer-reviewed articles, technical reports and book chapters. Her previous research was on the development and implementation of quantitative structure activity relationship models and quantum similarity techniques in the field of computer-aided molecular design. Currently her research interests are focused on new psychoactive substances, their related-effects, pharmacology and toxicity.

The Symposium will gather the latest research on changes in marine connectivity under anthropogenic pressures.

The objective of this course is to provide participants with basic knowledge on a) the fundamental aspects of experimental design and b) workflows, platforms and tools to increase reproducibility at all scientific levels.

In this course we will provide advanced hands-on training on some of the most used technological tools in field biology.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.

The goal of this course is to provide participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including its ecological and social aspects.
