April Workshop to Focus on Cancer Pathways; Assay Information Requested
The National Toxicology Program (NTP) announces a workshop titled “Converging on Cancer” scheduled for April 29-30 at the William Jefferson Clinton East Building, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC. The workshop will address using systems biology and knowledge of cancer pathways to better understand how environmental chemicals lead to cancer.
This free meeting is open to the public with attendance limited only by the space available. The meeting will consist of plenary sessions, breakout discussion sessions, and a poster session. The plenary sessions only will be webcast. Those wishing to attend in person must register by April 22; those wishing to view the plenary sessions by webcast may register any time through the end of the workshop on April 30.
In support of the workshop, NTP requests information regarding assays and approaches to measure the key biological mechanisms/pathways associated with chemical carcinogenesis. Information should be submitted by March 31.
