Contributor: Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM
The Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods (SACATM) will meet Sept. 27-28, 2016, at NIEHS in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. SACATM advises ICCVAM, NICEATM, and the NIEHS director on activities relevant to the ICCVAM mission. The focus of this year’s SACATM meeting will be to discuss and develop recommendations for implementing a national strategy for replacing, reducing, and refining animal use (3Rs) for regulatory testing.
The SACATM meeting is free and open to the public, and can be attended in person or viewed via webcast. An agenda, other materials, and links to registration for the upcoming meeting will be posted as they are available on the SACATM Upcoming Meetings webpage.
Those planning to attend the SACATM meeting in person may also want to plan to attend the 5th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Cellular and Computational Toxicology, which will be held on Sept. 29-30 at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Research Triangle Park.
