Computational Toxicology

Speaker(s):

Timothy Zacharewski, PhD; Michigan State University

Grace Patlewicz, PhD; US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Cecile Krejsa, PhD; Kartos Therapeutics—2018 PANWAT Achievement Award Winner

Description:
Computational toxicology is a rapidly developing discipline that integrates data from a variety of sources to develop mathematical and computer-based models to better understand and predict adverse health effects caused by chemicals, such as environmental pollutants and pharmaceuticals. Encompassing multidisciplinary fields, computational toxicology investigates the interactions of chemical agents and biological organisms across many scales (e.g., population, individual, cellular, and molecular). This integrated approach has applications ranging from hazard and risk prioritization of chemicals to safety screening of drug metabolites. The Pacific Northwest Regional Chapter of the Society of Toxicology will convene at the 2019 Annual PANWAT meeting and share recent advances in Computational Toxicology and its impact on academia, government, and industry.

Recent Advances in Risk Assessment: From Hazard Identification to Risk Communication

Description:

Toxicologists assess safety of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, consumer products, industrial compounds, nanomaterials and other xenobiotics. Key roles of toxicologists are hazard identification, science-based risk assessment and clear risk communication. In support of this critical role, the Pacific Northwest Regional Chapter of Society of Toxicology will convene at the 2012 Annual PANWAT meeting and share recent advances in hazard identification and risk assessment of pharmaceuticals, pesticides, biotechnology products, nanomaterials, environmental contaminants and other xenobiotics. Please join us in Seattle on September 20–22.

The Art and Science of Research Translation in Toxicology

Description:

Given the importance of toxicological research in society, it is critical that scientists translate research findings to diverse audiences. Successful translation of basic research can result in informed public health actions and science-based policies. Examples of translation include communicating with broad audiences, using new information or approaches to assess and manage risk, transferring tools and technology to stakeholders and assisting officials, communities and individual to make informed decisions based on new findings. An emphasis on regional approaches to translating toxicological research will be given at the 2011 PANWAT meeting.

Integrative Toxicity Test Methods to Improve Hazard Identification

Description:

New and integrative toxicity test methods are being developed and implemented to improve hazard identification and safety testing. Improved methods will offer rapid, accurate, relevant, and predictive results from systematic evaluations. We will focus on novel technologies that have been developed in one area of toxicology but have potential to add value to different sub-disciplines. A portion of the conference program will focus on translational outcomes, issues with assay validation, and the standardization of novel toxicity test assays.
