EPA and IIVS Webinar June 14: Regulatory Initiatives for New Approaches to Traditional Toxicity Testing

Sherry Ward, AltTox

Webinar: Tuesday, June 14, 2016 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM ET

The EPA OPP recently outlined ways in which it plans to reduce the use of animals in its traditional “6-pack” studies. Join us for this free, one-hour webinar to learn more about efforts by EPA OPP and IIVS to address the “6-pack” endpoint of eye and skin irritation.

Dr. Jennifer McLain, Deputy Director of the OPP Antimicrobial Division, will provide an overview of EPA’s programs to modernize the “6-pack” and provide suggestions on how stakeholders and EPA can cooperate to accelerate progress toward the animal-reduction goals. Dr. Rodger Curren of IIVS will describe IIVS’ previous activities in developing the current non-animal strategy for eye irritation, and recent investigations into in vitro methods to assess skin irritation. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
