Toxicologic Pathology and Risk Assessment of Environmental Exposures

Friday, September 16, 2022, 12:00 Noon–3:45 PM EDT

Co-Chairs: Arun K. Pandiri, BVSc&AH, MS, PhD, DACVP, DABT, NIEHS/NTP; and Maria L.Z. Dagli, DVM, MS, PhD, Universidade de São Paulo

Environmental toxicologic pathology is a specialized area that addresses the effects of contaminants and pollutants on human, animal, and ecological health. The common animal models to examine the potential hazards associated with environmental exposures include rodents, birds, amphibians, fish, and worms. The health hazards frequently resulting from environmental xenobiotic exposures include metabolic diseases and cancer. This session will aim to examine the common toxicologic pathology lesions and the regulatory assessments related to endocrine disruption and cancer. In addition, the use of adverse outcome pathways to understand disease and environmental risk assessment may also be discussed where ever it is appropriate.
