TOXICOLOGY AND RISK ASSESSMENT CONFERENCE 2014 SAVE THE DATE
The 2014 Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference (TRAC) will be a 4-day meeting focusing on topics in risk assessment principles and practice. The conference provides attendees with an overview of current research, methodologic, and practice issues that are the focus of risk assessment efforts in various Federal agencies, academic institutions, industry, and other organizations.
The theme of TRAC 2014 is “Toxicology and Risk Assessment Guidance: From Principles to Practice in the Age of Omics, Osomes, and New Opportunities.” This theme will examine the -omics fields, such as toxicogenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, components of the concept of the exposome, and other emerging technologies, for current state-of-the-science opportunities for setting guidance and exposure limits.
The Plenary session, on the first day of the main conference, and specific workshops on risk assessment methodologies held on the days before and after the two main conference days, comprise TRAC 2014. Conference registration information and a preliminary agenda will be available at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/conferences/TRAC/default.html.
Registration cost for the two main conference days, April 8-9, 2014, is $250. Other levels of registration fees are available. Workshops have separate registration fees as described on the conference website.Also featured is a poster session on the evening of April 8, 2014, with a trainee competition, for which the poster abstract deadline is March 14, 2014, midnight US EST. The poster session is designed to provide participants the opportunity to share their work in a focused, collegial environment. We invite poster abstract submissions of broad interest to toxicology and risk assessment. Further, we invite work that has been submitted in the previous year at other relevant conferences to stimulate discussion in the more focused environment of TRAC.
