We will be joined by presenters from many leading US research programs including ToxCast, Tox21, US EPA, NIEHS, NTP, NIH, US FDA, Risk21, Hamner and John Hopkins.
The meeting is organised in collaboration with ToxBank and will include participation from SEURAT-1 European research programs including HeMiBio, COSMOS, NOTOX, and ToxBank.
The meeting should provide a valuable opportunity to progress transatlantic goals on interoperability and collaboration supporting SEURAT-1 - Tox21 interactions based on concrete activities related to data resource interoperability, open standards, software development, modelling and integrated analysis.
We will also specifically address key îssues of extrapolation, kinetics modelling and risk assessment application providing roadblocks to be removed from the path to regulatory acceptance.
Abstracts for the poster session presentations should be submitted using:
On behalf of the OpenTox USA 2013 Organising Committee, we look forward to seeing you in Raleigh-Durham.
