Presentation Overview:

The Superfund Basic Research Program (SBRP), in collaboration with the US Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI), presents the Spring/Summer 2009 edition of Risk eLearning: "Computational Toxicology: New Approaches for the 21st Century." This series of online seminars will provide an introduction to the key concepts of computational toxicology along with case studies demonstrating the utility of these approaches (e.g. high throughput screening, computer modeling, informatics) to risk assessment.

This seminar, the first of the series, is titled "Computational Toxicology: An Introduction to Key Concepts and Approaches" and will feature Dr. Kim Boekelheide, Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Brown University and Dr. Robert Kavlock, Director of the National Center for Computational Toxicology (NCCT/ORD/USEPA). The seminar will draw from the findings of the 2007 National Research Council report "Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy" and will overview National Center for Computational Toxicology (NCCT) efforts to provide innovative solutions to a number of persistent and pervasive issues facing EPA's regulatory programs.

Upcoming sessions will take an in-depth look at computational toxicological approaches and available tools, featuring researchers from EPA, NIH, and SBRP.
