Improving Species Extrapolation for Protecting Endangered Species
Planning to be in Minneapolis next week for the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America Annual Meeting? Please join us for “Improving Species Extrapolation for Protecting Endangered Species: What Is Available and What Is Needed?”
Currently, data used to protect endangered species has the unintended consequence of helping to increase animal testing and prohibiting the acceptance of alternative test methods and data sources that would reduce or replace animal testing. This session is intended to explore what information is needed to protect endangered species and how improving methods for species extrapolation could best address those needs. Presentations on information needs under the Endangered Species Act and presentations from experts in the science of species extrapolation will be followed by a group discussion to identify a strategic path forward.
The workgroup will be held on Sunday, November 12 from 1-4pm at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Room: M101J.
