Rabi Mohtar, Texas A&M University

Dr. Brandi Schottel is a science analyst and sustainability science expert at the National Science Foundation Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental, and Transport Systems.

Professor Rabi Mohtar’s research at Texas A&M addresses global resource challenges such as the development of the Water-Energy-Food Nexus framework linking science to policy, characterization of the soil-water medium using thermodynamic modeling, efficacy of non-traditional water using physical-based methodologies; and applications for sustainable, integrated water management.

Global Evolution of Toxicity Testing and Assessment of Chemical Risk in the 21st Century
Daland Juberg, Dow AgroSciences
May 10, 2017, 12:00 – 1:00 PM EDT


Dr. Daland Juberg, Dow AgroSciences

Assessment of chemical hazard and risk has continued to evolve globally.  Emerging issues influencing product review and registration include the push for animal-free testing, new technological approaches for toxicity testing, and use of epidemiological data and biomonitoring data.  Geographical challenges and political influences will also continue to shape the success or failure of chemical product registrations in the years ahead.

Daland Juberg is Global Leader of the Human Health Assessment group within Dow AgroSciences R&D in Indianapolis, IN. He is presently chairing the TSCA Task Force and serving as President of the Regulatory and Safety Evaluation Specialty Section of the Society of Toxicology. He has directed the development and conduct of Congressional briefings on key societal issues related to environmental and public health, and is an adjunct professor at the University of Michigan Risk Science Center.
