NICEATM Director Participates in Congressional Briefing
Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM
NICEATM Director Warren Casey was a panelist for a September 13 Congressional briefing on “Alternatives to Animal Testing: Emerging Uses and Policy Implications.” Casey and other panelists discussed how to use non-animal and alternative toxicology and safety testing methods to better protect consumers and public health while using fewer animals. Topics considered included how to spark research that advances the development and application of alternatives, as well as what policy discussions are required to ensure regulatory frameworks can adapt while realizing the fastest possible innovation. The briefing was organized by the American Chemical Society and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School for Public Health, and sponsored by the offices of Representatives Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) and Ken Calvert (R-CA).
