Additional Meeting Information: Co-Chaired by SOT CRAD Members, Jamie DeWitt, Ben Kistinger, and Kathryn Page

We often hear the phrase “funded investigators are made, not born,” but is there just one mold for a “made” funded investigator in the world of toxicology, which relies on external funding to “get the job done”? The field of toxicology is much broader than the mechanisms by which exogenous agents induce human disease and although this area of toxicology represents a major area of funding for many toxicological researchers, other sources are available! Our first speaker is Dr. Deborah Keil from Montana State University. Dr. Keil will talk about funding that she has received from the Bureau of Land Management as well as from organizations that support Native American health. Dr. Laxmikant Deshpande of Virginia Commonwealth University has had success with funding from the Department of Defense through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). Dr. Kendall Wallace is from the University of Minnesota Medical School and is a Past President of SOT. Dr. Wallace has had success both with traditional funding mechanisms (i.e., National Institutes of Health) as well as with funding from corporate entities. Each of these researchers explore complex toxicological problems and have built their own molds for the funding that works best for their research interests, and they will share their stories of successes, failures, and lessons learned.

SOT FDA Colloquium: In Silico Methods for Food Ingredient, Dietary Supplement, and Cosmetic Safety

Organization: Society of Toxicology
Event Date or Start Date: 5/15/2019
End Date: 4/15/2019
Event Type: Other SOT Events
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: VA
Additional Meeting Information:

8:30 am-12:45 pm ET (UTC-4)

Attend in person at US FDA, College Park, Maryland or by webcast at no charge.

Speakers will explore the science behind new international trends in the in silico safety assessment of chemical exposure. Two common themes shared by international regulatory bodies are the critical issues involved in alternative methods to animal testing and the rigorous treatment of uncertainties to obtain reproducible and transparent weight-of-evidence approaches to decision making. For alternative methods to repeated-dose toxicity, toxicokinetics and metabolism are emphasized to understand chemical exposure and bioavailability. Biokinetics is further being applied to data-waiving methods such as the Threshold of Toxicological Concerns (TTC). Internal TTC is a TTC concept for situations of low internal exposure, where this value is more relevant than the external exposure. Development of internal TTCs requires a significant amount of data and computational tools (e.g., PBPK modeling) to convert the chemical specific external doses (i.e., NOAELs) in the TTC databases into an estimate of the internal exposure. Presenters will review the common concerns related to the relevance of in silico chemical safety assessment that may hinder its adoption if not properly addressed.

On June 3-4, 2019, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will hold a workshop on “Evidence Integration in Chemical Assessments: Challenges Faced in Developing and Communicating Human Health Effect Conclusions” in Washington, DC. The workshop’s aim is to explore ways to overcome challenges that present themselves to the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) during evidence integration in chemical assessments, with particular emphasis on the use of mechanistic data.


The event will explore many facets of evidence integration, which is a summary step of the systematic review in human health assessments conducted by the US EPA National Center for Environmental Assessment. Topics to be covered include (1) lessons learned from the evidence integration colloquium held in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2017; (2) best practices in evidence integration; (3) approaches for using mechanistic data to integrate evidence from animal and human studies; (4) case studies of systematic review-enabled evidence integration; and (5) practical approaches to expedited evidence integration.


The workshop organizing committee will review poster abstracts centered on at least one of the aforementioned topics, with an emphasis on the use of mechanistic data, for inclusion in poster presentations featured during the workshop. Interested parties should submit their abstracts for review by March 22, 2019, after which date the organizing committee will review them and select those to be included in the workshop.

Event Type: Other Scientific Events
Country: UNITED STATES
State or Region: NY
Additional Meeting Information: The Causal Mediation Analysis Training is a 3-day intensive boot camp of seminars and hands-on analytical sessions to provide an overview of concepts, data analysis methods used to investigate mediating mechanisms.

This three-day intensive course will cover some of the recent developments in causal mediation analysis and provide practical tools to implement these techniques and assess the mechanisms and pathways by which causal effects operate. Led by a team of experts in causal mediation techniques at Columbia University, this course will integrate lectures and discussion with hands-on computer lab sessions using R, SAS, SPSS and Stata. The course will cover the relationship between traditional methods for mediation in environmental health, epidemiology, and the social sciences and new methods in causal inference using a wide variety of examples to illustrate the techniques and approaches.

We will discuss 1) when the standard approaches to mediation analysis are valid for dichotomous, continuous, and time-to-event outcomes, 2) using ideas from causal inference and natural direct and indirect effects, alternative mediation analysis techniques (parametric and semiparametric) when the standard approaches will not work, 3) the no-confounding assumptions needed for these techniques and sensitivity analyses to assess the impact of violation of these assumptions, and 4) how such mediation analysis approaches can be extended in the presence of multiple mediators.

There is a limited capacity for the Boot Camp. Investigators at all career stages are welcome to attend, and we particularly encourage trainees and early-stage investigators to participate.

Registraton Deadline, July 3rd 2019
