Teresa J. Norberg-King
Adam Lillicrap


The primary purpose of SETAC Interest Groups (IGs) is to provide a venue for scientists with an interest in a particular scientific topic to share knowledge and expertise and advance the topic. Participation in all IGs is open to all interested parties. If you are not already a member of this IG and would like to be, make sure you are signed in to your SETAC account then click "Join Group” near the top of this page.


  • Understand the state of the science in animal alternatives with respect to acute and chronic testing
  • Foster discussion of key technical challenges for the future of the 3Rs (reduction, refinement, and replacement of animal tests) in environmental science.
  • Develop the basis for collaborative progress by all stakeholders.
  • Consider how animal alternatives in environmental science will impact risk assessment.


  • Serve as a scientific forum for all stakeholders interested in the mission of the IG.
  • Sponsor events (e.g., meetings, sessions, webinars) and publications within SETAC that advance the mission of the IG


IG operations are organized by a steering committee. Please contact the chairs if the IG if you would like to be involved.
