Environmental protection in a multi-stressed world: challenges for science, industry and regulators.

The innovative use of chemicals and nanomaterials in new technologies, industry and agriculture challenges many aspects of the ecosystem functioning of the global environment. However, these new technologies and materials also offer opportunities to remediate or minimise these anthropogenic insults. Finding innovative solutions to environmental problems is ever more important in the current economic scenario. For SETAC, this is a challenge we relish. This international conference brings together experts from government, industry, consultancy and academia to meet this challenge. The conference will focus on the most recent advances in environmental sciences and will provide platforms for implementing this knowledge, for improving the protection of our environment and to shape policies from current viewpoints to future needs.

SETAC Pellston Workshop on Environmental Mixtures

Location: Valencia, Spain

Dates: March 23-27, 2015

Over the past 10-15 years, there has been an increased emphasis on the monitoring of “emerging or trace organic contaminants” leading to long lists of chemicals observed in the field and open questions regarding the potential of their combined effects. Several major studies have investigated the potential combinatory effects of these chemicals within the context… Read More>

Over the past 10-15 years, there has been an increased emphasis on the monitoring of “emerging or trace organic contaminants” leading to long lists of chemicals observed in the field and open questions regarding the potential of their combined effects. Several major studies have investigated the potential combinatory effects of these chemicals within the context of other, non-chemical, stressors via field studies, a.k.a. eco-epidemiology. These studies have provided frameworks that guide investigators through large and highly complicated datasets by reducing complexity and providing recommendations for appropriate management action. While these frameworks have clearly advanced environmental science, risk assessment and potential management, they remain elusive for most stakeholders. In essence, they appear to be too complicated for verification and forecasting for risk managers.

There is a need for testable frameworks that simplify the complexities of assigning causality and provides tools that can be used for forecasting risks based on potential exposure scenarios. This 5 day SETAC Pellston international workshop will address this need by exploring whether the complexities of diverse potential exposure-responses can be simplified into exposure scenarios. Participants in the workshop will address the scientific underpinnings of mixture toxicity and help refine and simplify these per exposure scenario. It is expected that retrospective methods can be used to test the veracity of these decision criteria and then be flipped to forecast the potential effects of chemical mixtures.

A key output from the workshop will be guidance on how generalized decision trees can be used in forecasting where chemical exposure may represent a potential concern.

The SOT Annual Meeting is the largest meeting of its kind. This annual event features a broad range of scientific sessions and a thematic program that provides participants with a unique opportunity to deepen their knowledge in topical areas and interact with leaders in their respective disciplines. The scientific program includes Plenary Lectures and other featured sessions, Symposia, Workshops, Roundtable discussions, Informational Sessions, and a Regional Interest Session, as well as Platform and Poster Sessions. The Society anticipates that more than 6,500 toxicologists from more than 50 countries will attend. The SOT Annual Meeting also includes the ToxExpo, which is the largest exhibition dedicated to toxicology and the biomedical sciences. ToxExpo features 350 exhibitors who lead the industry in developing cutting-edge products, services, and technology to benefit the toxicology community. Exhibitors also have the opportunity to demonstrate their products and educate attendees about their services via Exhibitor-Hosted Sessions throughout the week.
