Topical Scientific Workshop on New Approach Methodologies in Regulatory Science will be held at ECHA, Helsinki on 19-20 April 2016

The 2016 ECHA Topical Scientific Workshop explores the regulatory application arising from a fundamental change in thinking emerging in regulatory science.   The drivers are a better understanding of the underlying biology behind how chemicals cause adverse effects to human health and new tools and techniques which provide a huge amount of data available from ‘omics’ and high-throughput screening methods.  The Workshop draws inspiration from the EU research programme SEURAT-1 and the US Tox 21 initiative.
