Last month, the International Council of Chemical Associations’ Long-Range Research Initiative (ICCA-LRI), along with Health Canada, hosted its 2011 workshop, Advancing Exposure Science to Improve Chemical Safety.
The workshop was a major success, bringing together nearly 100 toxicologists, exposure scientists, environmental epidemiologists, statisticians and policy experts to promote innovation in the methods and technologies used for assessing chemical safety. Participants evaluated a variety of available models and measurement approaches with promising potential to advance this important field of research.
A report on the workshop will be available on ACC’s LRI website later this summer. In the meantime, you can review our 2010 workshop summary report, Integrating New Advances in Exposure Science and Toxicity Testing: Next Steps, as well as our new ICCA-LRI brochure, Science for a Sustainable Future.
In addition to the Long-Range Research Initiative (LRI), ACC sponsors the Center for Advancing Risk Assessment Science and Policy (ARASP), where you can find information about how chemicals interact with the body and the relationship between chemical exposure and safety.
