Additional Activities

NTP participated in a number of meetings with stakeholders and the scientific community. At the 2016 annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology in New Orleans, staff from NTP and NIEHS participated in more than 35 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 2016 annual NTP Satellite Symposium, Pathology Potpourri, was held in San Diego and the 2017 symposium will be held in Montreal, Canada on June 24. These symposiums are held the day before the Society of Toxicologic Pathology 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 symposiums 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 three webinar series in FY 2016 related to alternative methods development:

  • In Vitro to In Vivo Extrapolation for High Throughput Prioritization and Decision Making
  • Fundamentals of Using Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship Models and Read-across Techniques in Predictive Toxicology
  • Alternative Approaches for Acute Inhalation Toxicity to Address Global Regulatory and Non-regulatory Data Requirements
