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
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.
