SETAC Europe Symposium "Extrapolation of Effects Across Biological Levels: Challenges to Implement Scientific Approaches in Regulation", Brussels (B)
Tuesday, October 23, 2018 to Wednesday, October 24, 2018
This Special Science Symposium will show a series of new developments that facilitate the extrapolation of adverse effects, caused by chemical exposure, observed in experiments amongst different levels of biological organisation. Different methodologies will be showcased, such as Quantitative Adverse Outcome Pathways, Toxicokinetic-Toxicodynamic modelling, Population models, Ecosystem/food chain models and landscape level models.
The symposium will start with the regulatory views from EFSA, ECHA and the European Commission on the implementation of these new developments into Environmental Risk Assessment. This will be followed by a series of expert presentations on novel experimental and modelling approaches, as well as successful case studies on how these approaches could inform future Environmental Risk Assessments of chemicals.
