EPA Requests Nominees for Scientific Advisory Panel

EPA is seeking nominations of ad hoc members for its Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act Scientific Advisory Panel (FIFRA SAP). The FIFRA SAP will meet in 2018 to consider physiologically based pharmaokinetic models to address species differences in pharmacokinetics for pesticide active ingredients. The request for nominees was published in a December 18 Federal Register notice.

The FIFRA SAP provides scientific advice, information, and recommendations to the EPA Administrator on pesticides and pesticide-related issues impacting health and environmental regulatory actions. Nominees to serve on the FIFRA SAP for the upcoming meeting should have expertise in areas including physiologically based pharmacokinetic modeling, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamic modeling, in vitro to in vivo extrapolation, human health risk assessment, neurotoxicity, and exposure assessment. Nominations should be submitted by January 17, 2018; the meeting will be scheduled and details announced after the panel members are selected.
