Planning to be in Minneapolis next week for the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America Annual Meeting? Please join us at The Species Extrapolation Workgroup, a meeting that will explore how scientists can protect endangered species while reducing animal testing.

Currently, data used to protect endangered species has the unintended consequence of helping to increase animal testing and prohibiting the acceptance of alternative test methods and data sources that would reduce or replace animal testing. Presentations and a discussion will explore what data is needed to protect endangered species and how improving species extrapolation methods could best address those needs.

The workgroup will be held on Sunday, November 12 from 1-4pm at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Room: M101J.
