IVIVE Webinars and Workshop

Contributor: Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM

A series of four webinars on In Vitro to In Vivo Extrapolation for High Throughput Prioritization and Decision Making are being presented by the National Toxicology Program Interagency Center for the Evaluation of Alternative Toxicological Methods (NICEATM) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The webinar series began October 7 and will culminate in a February 2016 workshop to be held at EPA in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

The workshop aims to address the capabilities and the limitations of in vitro to in vivo extrapolation (IVIVE) within the context of risk decision making. The webinar series will present the current science and the in-person workshop will facilitate discussions that will follow up and build on information presented in the webinars. Workshop participants will (1) review the state of the science to form recommendations on the best practices for using IVIVE in chemical screening and risk decision making, (2) identify areas that require additional data and/or research, and (3) highlight examples of how best to apply IVIVE in a tiered risk decision-making strategy.

More information on the workshop and a link to registration are available on the NICEATM website. The first webinar on Setting the Stage: Purpose, Definitions, Scope, and Assumptions was presented October 7; links to the presentation and a recording of the webinar (if available) will be posted soon. The next webinar on Building Fit-for-purpose Pharmacokinetic Models is on November 4; to ensure access to the webinar please register by November 2.
