New Approaches and Alternatives for Toxicity Testing: Session III - Modernizing Safety Testing
Internet Seminar
The NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) is hosting a webinar series highlighting research that may be useful as new approaches and methodologies for evaluating the safety of chemicals. In the third session, presenters will discuss new and emerging strategies for chemical safety evaluation. This will include new and emerging in vivo, in vitro, and in silico models to address population variability, and how in vitro high-throughput assays can provide useful information for hazard assessment of complex mixtures. Presenters include: Bill Suk, Ph.D., director of the Superfund Research Program, Weihsueh Chiu, Ph.D., leader of the Texas A&M SRP Center Decision Science Core, and Michael DeVito, Ph.D., acting chief of the National Toxicology Program Laboratory. This series coincides with recent initiatives found in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's New Draft Strategic Plan and the National Toxicology Program's Strategic Roadmap.

Perspectives on the Implementation of Greener Cleanups
Internet Seminar
The practice of implementing greener cleanups to secure protective remedies with a lower environmental footprint continues to mature and expand, with greater levels of experience among regulators, site owners, and cleanup professionals alike. Through this webinar we will hear first-hand from individuals in all three sectors on their experiences with actual sites where greener cleanups have been implemented., Three of the projects applied the ASTM Standard Guide for Greener Cleanups (E2893), and represent three major federal agencies involved in site cleanups. We will also learn how greener cleanups are implemented by a corporation owning a portfolio of sites requiring remediation work.

EPA's Non-Targeted Analysis Collaborative Trial (ENTACT) Workshop
08/13/2018 - 08/15/2018
Research Triangle Park, NC
In August 2015, EPA held its first non-targeted analysis (NTA) workshop. After a half-day discussion at the 2015 workshop, EPA's Non-Targeted Analysis Collaborative Trial (ENTACT) was born. As a brief update, we have enrolled nearly 30 participants to analyze 10 ToxCast mixtures and 6 exposure media samples (serum, house dust, and silicone bands). Each lab is using their own NTA methods in both a blinded and unblinded fashion. To date, 15 labs have returned their blinded analyses and 7 have completed a review of the data after being unblinded. Additionally, 5 vendors and 2 other labs have received the entire ToxCast chemical library so that mass spectra can be collected and stored in a variety of commercial and publicly available libraries for use by the NTA community. We are hosting a follow-up workshop August 13-15, 2018 in RTP, to discuss the results from ENTACT, new data analysis tools, and next steps. There will be both in-person and webinar options available. The workshop website is the best place to see the call for abstracts, register (coming soon), and learn more as the agenda is developed and speakers are selected.
