MED To Host HESI-Sponsored Expert Workshop
On May 15 and 16, 2012, the NHEERL Mid-Continent Ecology Division (MED) in Duluth, MN, will host a Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI)-sponsored expert workshop on the adverse outcome pathways during fish early development. Specifically, the purpose of the workshop is to identify established and hypothesized adverse outcome pathways associated with early life stage mortality in fish to support the development of efficient and cost-effective chemical screening and prioritization strategies. Eight NHEERL scientists (Gerald Ankley, Michael Hornung, Rodney Johnson, David Mount, Teresa Norberg-King, Stephanie Padilla, Joseph Tietge, and Dan Villeneuve) will participate in the workshop.
