NICEATM Workshops

In Vitro to In Vivo Extrapolation for High Throughput Prioritization and Decision Making Workshop

NICEATM and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) presented a webinar series on In Vitro to In Vivo Extrapolation for High Throughput Prioritization and Decision Making. The four webinars, presented monthly from October 2015 through January 2016, reviewed the current science on the use of in vitro data to predict in vivo outcomes of chemical safety testing.

The webinars provided background information for a workshop held on February 17-18, 2016 at the EPA in Research Triangle Park, NC. Workshop participants reviewed the state of the science to form recommendations on best practices for using in vitro to in vivo extrapolation in chemical screening and risk-based decision-making. They also identified areas needing additional data or research, and highlighted examples of how best to apply in vitro to in vivo extrapolation in risk-based decision-making strategies.

Presentations from the workshop and webinar series are available on the NTP website. A report from the workshop will be submitted for publication in FY 2017.

Acute Inhalation Toxicity Webinar Series

NICEATM and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals International Science Consortium co-hosted a webinar series on Alternative Approaches for Acute Inhalation Toxicity to Address Global Regulatory and Non-regulatory Data Requirements. The six webinars, held from March to September 2016, explored alternative approaches that could replace, reduce, or refine the use of animals for identifying chemicals that may cause acute systemic toxicity when inhaled. Slides from the webinars are posted on the NTP website.
