This workgroup will focus on communication and transition issues as EPA phases in new predictive and testing methods over the next three to five years. This work group will help to focus EPA’s efforts on the key activities needed for successful communication and transition.
Key communication activities include identifying ways to improve understanding and communicate complex science to all stakeholders.
Key transition activities include: identifying other internal and external applications of this ‘new’ science (e.g., improving agency decision-making capability by harnessing new data streams and developing new diagnostic tools and biomarkers) and providing process recommendations to transition to the new testing paradigm.
The Workgroup is chaired by Jennifer McLain EPA/OPP/AD.
