Registration Open for Webinar on Non-animal Approaches for Inhalation Toxicity Testing
Registration is open for the 2019 ICCVAM Communities of Practice webinar on “Non-animal Approaches for Inhalation Toxicity Testing.” It will be presented on January 22, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The webinar is organized by NICEATM on behalf of ICCVAM.
The webinar is free and open to the public, but registration is required to attend. A link to registration and additional information about the webinar is available on the National Toxicology Program website. Please note that NICEATM is operating normally, and the webinar will be presented regardless of whether the partial government shutdown has been resolved by January 22.
The webinar will provide an overview of several ongoing collaborative efforts associated with acute and subchronic inhalation toxicity testing, with emphasis on available human cell-based and in silico methodologies, considerations of dosimetry, and developing technologies that could provide predictive test methods in the future. The webinar will also present a case study describing a source-to-outcome approach that uses in vitro and in silico methods to refine inhalation risk assessment for point of contact toxicity.
