Call for Posters & Student and Young Professionals Travel Awards for Nano Risk Analysis II: A Workshop to Explore How a Multiple Models Approach Can Advance Risk Analysis of Nanoscale Materials.
** Deadline extended to August 1st, 2014**
September 15-16, 2014 • Washington, D.C.
Got BIG research on NANOmaterials? Come share your
interesting work with experts from around the globe at the Society for Risk
Analysis Nano Risk Analysis II workshop!
About the Workshop
The Nano Risk Analysis II workshop seeks to elaborate
shared strengths and gaps in support of a Weight of Evidence (WOE) approach
relying on Alternative Testing Strategy (ATS) to inform context–specific
decisions about risk from exposure to novel nanoscale materials. The goal is to inform the development of
guidance for ATS use in overall approaches to those decisions. As such,
suitable topics for poster presentations include research on high-throughput
techniques, in vitro cell based and cell free assays, WOE or
strength-of-evidence approaches to assessing exposure and risk,
decision-analytic approaches, regulatory approaches, and challenges to applying
ATS for nanoscale materials. We are open to a range of topics related to
Alternative Testing Strategies, so please feel free to contact us if you have
any questions about your topic.
This competition will provide several graduate students
and young professionals (i.e., individuals who completed their degree within
5-years) with $500 in travel assistance to attend the Nano Risk Analysis II
Workshop. Details at: http://srananoworkshop.org/travel-awards.html
