The take-home message was that by understanding toxicity in terms of Toxicity Pathways, we'll be able to use intelligent combinations of computational and in vitro methods to assess the potential hazard and risk that a chemical may pose to humans and the environment, without resorting to animal testing. Shifting to this new paradigm promises more efficient, comprehensive and cost effective testing strategies for every chemical in commerce and will provide a convincing scientific basis to move away from animal testing. But 7 years on from the publication of the NRC landmark report, much still needs to be done to translate Toxicity Pathway concepts into safety assessment practice. http://www.thehamner.org/news-events/entry/the-hamner-and-eurl-ecvam-publish-report-on-how-toxicity-pathway-concepts-c Joe Trask to Lead SBI2 West Coast Regional Meeting http://www.thehamner.org/news-events/entry/joe-trask-to-lead-sbi2-west-coast-regional-meeting Joe Trask to Present at 2014 SLAS Conference http://www.thehamner.org/news-events/entry/joe-trask-to-present-at-2014-slas-conference Agilent Technologies Thought Leader Award Supports Dr. Paul Watkins, Hamner-UNC IDSS http://www.thehamner.org/news-events/entry/agilent-technologies-thought-leader-award-supports-paul-watkins-hamner Agilent Technologies Thought Leader Award Supports Dr. Paul Watkins Agilent Technologies Inc.
