The annual, international ICCA-LRI Workshop, Advancing Chemical Risk Evaluations Through Use of New Approach Methods (NAMs): Challenges and Opportunities, will be held 20 and 21 June 2022 at the Intercontinental Yokohama Grand in Yokohama, Japan. This workshop is being co-organized by the International Council of Chemical Association’s (ICCA) Long-Range Research Initiative (LRI), and the National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE).
This hybrid workshop will allow participation in-person or online.
Registration is now open here.
- Engaging Sessions. International speakers and panelists representing governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, academia, and industry will explore the following topic areas and engage the audience in discussion:
- The use and evaluation of NAMs for specific decision contexts
- NAMs knowledge gaps
- Challenges and opportunities for future research in developing and applying NAMs in chemical safety assessment
- Cutting-Edge Research. New research will be showcased during a poster session on the evening of Monday, 20 June 2022.
This workshop will highlight recent research activities and initiatives to accelerate the development and use of new approach methods (NAMs) in chemical risk assessments. NAMs are methods that do not rely on the use of animals in testing, for instance in-vitro approaches (laboratory techniques) or in-silico models (computerized predictions).
Cefic-LRI will participate through the organizing committee, session chairing, LRI project talks, industry perspective, and a poster presentation on the AMBIT3 predictive toxicity tool.
The workshop will bring together international representatives from industry, academia, and governmental and non-governmental organizations to address issues of mutual interest in chemical safety.
