Exponent Presenting at SETAC


November 10, 2011

In our client work, we strive to bring practical yet innovative scientific approaches to solving difficult technical problems. As part of this effort, we also exchange ideas with our colleagues in the field and publish our results, whenever appropriate.

The 32nd Annual Meeting of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC), November 13–17, 2011 in Boston is an important venue and we are pleased to share the list of presentations that Exponent scientists will be presenting or co-authoring. Session topics include:
