SETAC Africa 10th Biennial Conference
The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) will host the SETAC Africa 10th Biennial Conference virtually on September 19–22, 2021. The goal of the conference is to support the development of integrative approaches that address new potential risks, as well as to find optimized solutions that balance the various needs of humankind and simultaneously safeguard the protection of the environment.
On Sunday, September 19, at 8:00 AM–11:00 AM UTC/3:00 PM–6:00 PM PT, Charles A. Menzie, Ph.D., Exponent principal scientist, will help lead a workshop titled “Ecological and Human Health Risk Assessment Training.” During the course, he will address PCBs while several of his Exponent colleagues from the Ecological and Biological Sciences practice will be speaking on the following topics: Richard J. Wenning, principal scientist (climate change); Susan B. Kane Driscoll, Ph.D., senior managing scientist (oil and gas); Michael W. Kierski, Ph.D., managing scientist (lead); Konrad J. Kulacki, Ph.D., managing scientist (plastics); Margaret L. Fleming, Ph.D., associate (veterinary products); and Alexandra N. Steele, Ph.D., scientist (PFAS).
Although the focus of the course will be on ecological risk assessment, human health risk assessment methods will also be discussed for select chemicals and environmental issues. The goal of the course is to enable participants to understand how the basic risk assessment principles related to problem formulation and exposure and effects assessment can be applied to a broad array of matters.
