2017 Society of Toxicology Satellite Meeting; Horizons and Challenges in Organotypic Culture Models for Predictive Toxicology (March 11, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Baltimore Convention Center, Room 310) 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, through its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) grant program, is developing in vitro cell cultures models that replicate human biological interactions within complex tissues or organs that may possibly reduce animal testing. These Organotypic Culture Models for Predictive Toxicology (OCM-PTs) will provide toxicity testing alternatives that are more public health relevant, faster, and less costly. Sessions will take place at the Baltimore Convention Center on March 11. Read more here: http://www.toxicology.org/events/am/AM2017/program.asp#SatelliteMeetings
