EPA Research at Society of Toxicology | 2016

Exhibit Booth Location: #1351

On this page


EPA scientists will participate in the 2016 Society of Toxicology (SOT) Annual Meeting and ToxExpo on March 13-17, 2016 in New Orleans. Advances in EPA's toxicology research will be featured at SOT sessions, symposia, workshops, platform discussions, informational sessions, poster sessions, and at EPA's booth in the ToxExpo exhibit hall. SOT provides a forum to discuss and disseminate information about this research to the scientific community.

EPA scientists provide leadership roles in SOT, serving as officers and chairpersons, leading and participating in continuing education courses and providing scientific presentations during plenary sessions as keynote speakers.

Key Events

US EPA and Unilever Present New Research Collaboration to Advance Nonanimal Approaches for Chemical Risk Assessment

March 14, 9:00 - 10:00 AM CST CC Rm 212

US EPA and Unilever will present progress on a research collaboration to develop ground-breaking scientific approaches to better assess the safety of chemicals found in some consumer products without using animal data. US EPA and Unilever are developing a series of case studies based on chemicals of mutual interest.

Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) and the Use of High-Throughput Assays and Predictive Models to Screen for Endocrine Activity

  • Monday, March 14 12:00 - 1:00 PM CST CC Rm 212
  • Tuesday, March 15 12:00 - 1:00 PM CST CC Rm 212

The US EPA’s Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP) is incorporating high-throughput and predictive model approaches for screening chemicals for endocrine activity. These sessions concern the benefits of this transition as well as progress, next steps, and opportunities to participate. This approach will accelerate the pace of screening, decrease costs, and reduce animal testing.

Organotypic Culture Models (OCM) Centers Progress Review Satellite Meeting

Thursday, March 17 1:00 - 5:00 PM CST CC Rm 213

These Science to Achieve Results (STAR) research grants support the development and evaluation of medium to high throughput toxicity screening systems in order to assess environmental chemicals. Their work, on tissue systems including the brain, liver, kidney, testis, breast tissue, heart and neurovascular systems, is intended to complement ongoing EPA research and lead to refined models of how organs and tissues respond to environmental chemicals. Researchers from the four EPA STAR grant Centers and from EPA’s Office of Research and Development will present their work.
