During FY 2017, NTP participated in several meetings with stakeholders and the scientific community. At the 2017 annual meeting of the Society of Toxicology in Baltimore, Maryland, staff from NTP and NIEHS participated in numerous workshops, symposia, platform sessions, education and information sessions, and poster sessions. The full program, including all NTP and NIEHS activities, can be found at the Society of Toxicology website. NTP Director Linda Birnbaum received the Distinguished Toxicology Scholar award at the 2017 meeting.
NTP regularly hosts symposiums and workshops to discuss the state of the science or issues of public health concern. For example, NTP held "Pathology Potpourri," an annual satellite symposium, in Montreal, Canada the day before the 2017 Society of Toxicologic Pathology meeting. The symposium’s goal is to present current diagnostic pathology or nomenclature issues to the toxicological pathology community. Proceedings will be published in the journal, "Toxicologic Pathology," including summaries of presentations and images of specific pathologies that were used for audience voting and discussion on specific diagnostic and nomenclature issues.
NTP also hosted three workshop and webinar series in FY 2017 related to alternative methods development:
