NTP participated in a number of meetings with stakeholders and the scientific community. At the 2015 annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology in San Diego, staff from NTP and NIEHS participated in more than 45 workshops, symposia, platform sessions, education and information sessions, and poster sessions. The full program, including all NTP and NIEHS activities, can be found at on the Society of Toxicology website.
NTP also hosts symposiums and workshops to discuss the state of the science, and advances to the field. For example, the 2015 annual NTP Satellite Symposium, Pathology Potpourri, will be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, October 17, at the American College of Veterinary Pathologists, American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology, and Society of Toxicologic Pathology combined annual meeting. The goal of this annual symposium is to present current diagnostic pathology or nomenclature issues to the toxicologic pathology community, including diagnostically difficult, interesting, or rare lesions, or challenging nomenclature issues. Proceedings of the symposium will be published in the journal Toxicologic Pathology, along with summaries of presentations on diagnostic or nomenclature issues, and specific pathologic images that were used for audience voting and discussion.
NTP also hosted four workshops in FY 2015 related to alternative methods development:
