ICCA-LRI & NCATS Workshop: What Is Normal? Implications for Chemical Safety Assessment

June 11-12, 2013
La Posada de Santa Fe Hotel
Santa Fe, New Mexico

The International Council of Chemical Associations’ Long-Range Research Initiative (ICCA-LRI) and the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) invite you to attend this year’s workshop on the provocative question of what is normal for humans regarding responses to chemical exposures.

Exposures to chemicals occur as part of everyday life.  How can we better understand those exposures that are within the normal range of adaptability for a cell, tissue, organ, or whole system such that adverse outcomes do not occur?

Take a look. Click here to see the latest agenda for the workshop. Session topics include:

  • Understanding what is normal - What does human biology tell us?
  • Biomarkers of exposure - How can we better collect and interpret these data?
  • How do genetics, age, and nutrition impact the responses to chemical exposures?
  • Which recent innovations in in vitro and animal model systems can advance our evaluation of what is normal?

Consider. Attendee feedback from last year’s ICCA-LRI & UK HPA Workshop: “The workshop content and the meeting logistics were all excellent.” “Input from both industrial and regulatory bodies gave perspectives not usually available, and the social program promoted beneficial and easily accessible informal discussion.” “Although it is typically difficult to get a full overview of the latest developments in a field as complex and dynamic as chemical safety sciences, the workshop accomplished this task.”

Engage. Personal interaction drives innovation and collaboration, according to a recent Cisco study of human behavior. They found that “people were more engaged when they could see and hear each other well, basically interacting the way humans have interacted for thousands of years: face to face.” Source: Harbrinder Kang, Senior Director of Corporate Affairs at Cisco, April 9, 2013, Forbes
