NICEATM Publications Honored by SOT Specialty Section
Two NICEATM publications have been honored by the Risk Assessment Specialty Section of the Society of Toxicology (SOT).
“Non-animal methods to predict skin sensitization (II): an assessment of defined approaches” was awarded Best Paper of 2018 in the category of “Advancing the Science of Risk Assessment.” NICEATM Deputy Director Nicole Kleinstreuer is first author on the paper, and NICEATM Director Warren Casey and three scientists supporting NICEATM through a contract with ILS are co-authors. More information about NICEATM projects to develop defined approaches for skin sensitization hazard prediction is available on the NICEATM website.
“Adding context to Tox21/ToxCast data: linking in vitro assays to toxicity outcomes” was recognized as one of the top 10 risk assessment abstracts at the 2019 SOT Annual Meeting. Agnes Karmaus, ILS, is first author on the abstract, and Casey, Kleinstreuer, and two ILS contractors supporting NICEATM are co-authors.
